Lime, Lyft offer ride discounts for New York voters looking to get to and from polling places


Some transit companies are trying to make it easier for voters to get to the polls for the midterm election tomorrow — offering rides for free or at a discount to encourage people to cast their ballots.

Lime — the short-term electronic bike and scooter rental company — said in a press release it would be providing riders with free trips to Bronx polls Tuesday. The offer includes two free rides on any Lime e-scooter of up to 30 minutes each way to and from the polls with the promotional code LIMETOTHEPOLLS2022.
