Does lack of transportation keep you from getting to your child’s medical appointments?
Do you live in Allegheny County without access to a car or a bus line?
Do you need transportation to your child’s primary care or outpatient appointment?
If you answered “yes” to the above questions, you may be eligible for Lyft rides to your UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh appointments.
UPMC Children's families who live in Allegheny County can receive free round-trip rides to their medical appointments at UPMC Children's Hospital's main campus in Lawrenceville, select outreach locations, and Primary Care locations of Oakland and Turtle Creek, thanks to a partnership among UPMC Children’s Hospital, Lyft, and the nonprofit 2-1-1.
When you call 2-1-1, mention that you heard about the Lyft ride from UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.
When scheduling your ride, you must have this information ready:
If you have a change in schedule and need to cancel/change the ride time, PLEASE CALL 2-1-1 as soon as you know about the change.
Lyft drivers do not provide car seats. If your child is required to be in a car seat while riding in a vehicle, you must have your own car seat. If you need help finding a car seat, contact the PA Traffic Injury Prevention Project at 1-800-227-2358 or visit their website.
Staff with questions about this service can email Abigail Carpenter, program manager for Clinical-Community Connections.
2-1-1 is not able to control availability of drivers. Some areas may not have rides available. In this case, 2-1-1 may be able to connect you to other transportation resources.
Lyft has implemented extra health safety precautions to help protect riders and drivers from COVID-19. Lyft is working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to inform their health safety policies.
