PHOENIX – The popular driving service Lyft has been testing their grocery access program on select cities, and now they are coming to Phoenix! 

Lyft offers discounted trips to the grocery store in order to promote healthier eating for those in areas with limited options. Local partners help the service company decide who is eligible. This usually includes those who live in food deserts and qualify for food stamps. 

The trip to the grocery usually averages about $2.50, but prices can vary depending on the market. 

The program started in Dallas and has now expanded to 15 cities and one district: Atlantic City, Baltimore, Chicago, Columbus, Detroit, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Miami, Ottawa, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, Richmond, and Toronto.
