Lyft will offer free rides to March for Our Lives rallies across the country

Thousands are planning to participate in the March 24 rally against gun violence, March for Our Lives, and the getting there part of things just got a little bit easier thanks to Lyft. The ride-hailing app announced Friday that in honor of the work of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School survivors, it will be offering free rides to anyone trying to get to a rally.

"We believe there is something seriously wrong when the threat of gun violence is so frequent and real throughout our country," the company wrote in a statement. "And like many, we are inspired by your leadership."
