UPMC Children’s Hospital Launches New Transportation Partnership with Lyft

UPMC Children’s Hospital has partnered with Lyft to provide free transportation to families that lack access to transportation and need assistance getting to appointments at their facilities.

Launched in April 2023, the partnership allows Children’s Hospital staff to provide unique voucher codes to families, which allow them schedule free rides to the hospital, and other select locations, through the Lyft mobile app.

A limited number of voucher codes are available to families each month. Vouchers are only available for appointments at UPMC Children’s Hospital (main and satellite locations: Children’s South, North, East, and Pine Center) and Children’s Primary Care Centers of Oakland and Turtle Creek.

Free, round-trip rides are only available to families with a voucher code. To access a free ride, families must first obtain a voucher code. To obtain a voucher for a Lyft ride to an appointment, parents or caregivers must speak with their child’s care team at one of the eligible locations.

Rides are available thanks to a partnership among UPMC Children’s Hospital, Lyft, and PA 2-1-1 Southwest.

UPMC Children’s Hospital does not guarantee a voucher code for any appointment.
