Lyft Flyer Ride

Lyft Flyer Ride

New name, same great service!

The University of Dayton has partnered with Lyft to offer discounted ride rates to students via the Lyft Flyer Ride program. This service replaces Flyer Ride, a safe ride service operated by Public Safety and staffed by students, to provide late-night rides to and from Main Campus, Curran Place, UD Arena, Miami Valley Hospital, Dayton Children's Hospital and Kettering Medical Center. The new program is designed to reduce wait times and to serve a greater number of students.

To begin using Lyft Flyer Ride, University students will download the Lyft Flyer Ride app from the link provided in the initial email from Lyft. 

Each month 2,000 discounted rides will be available to students on a first-come, first-served basis. By the University contributing $6 per ride for those first 2,000 rides each month, the average cost to the student is expected to be $2 or less per ride. Students may book a standard or XL Lyft via the Lyft Flyer Ride app. Campus pick-up and drop-off locations are defined within Lyft as a predetermined, geo-fenced area based on the latest campus map. 

The program is available seven days a week from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. 

To protect the health of passengers, "shared" rides are temporarily suspended to help eliminate the spread of COVID-19. All students should wear a face mask when using public transportation. Lyft has initiated additional health and safety measures through a Personal Health Certification program.

If you have deleted the email invitation or would like your Lyft Pass invitation to be sent, contact and use "Lyft" in the email subject line.
