      The Lyft Pass is an automated way to provide transportation. Use the pass for late-night transportation, student airport rides, student volunteer transportation and campus visitor transportation. Pass holders may use these functions:

      • Add dates, times, locations and ride-type options.
      • Fully or partially cover the cost of rides for eligible riders.
      • Share passes with riders via text, email or a Lyft promo code.


      The Autopay option allows faculty and staff to bill their rides directly to a corporate account and allows:

      • Faculty and staff to separate business-related rides from personal rides.
      • Hassle-free expensing — Lyft integrates with Concur and Expensify. 
      • Discounted rates on Lyft Rentals plus Hilton Honors, Delta SkyMiles and Chase perks.


      The Concierge option can provide emergency rides home, rides to and from campus health centers, research program participant travel, student volunteer transportation, group travel and rides for on-campus visitors. The option permits users to:  

      • Book trips for a rider through a web-based portal on any internet-enabled device.
      • Request rides for people who don't have the Lyft app.
