The Lyft Grocery Access Program offers families discounted rides to grocery stores and launched in a pilot last winter in Washington, D.C., in the United States.
As of today, the program has expanded nationwide in the U.S. but also has plans to expand in Canada, with a debut in Ottawa and Toronto, later this year, according to the company in an email to iPhone in Canada. The program offers subsidized rides to families to allow them access to grocery stores with fresh fruit, vegetables and other wholesome foods.

The pilot program in Washington, DC, offered 500 families during a 6-month pilot program a $2.50 US flat fare for rides to and from grocery stores in select areas.
Lyft was unable to provide Canadian information on the program, but said it would release partner details coming soon.
