Lyft and Alameda DA’s Office Partner to Provide Free Rides to and from FJC Jun 15, 2020

The District Attorney’s Office and Lyft have teamed up to provide access to transportation for victims and survivors of domestic violence, human trafficking, elder abuse, and sexual assault with rides to and from the Family Justice Center. The transportation network company will provide access to free rides to those in need of transportation to and from the Center where they will receive vital help and resources.

“We are extremely grateful to Lyft. It takes a company with compassion and a vision to make available this type of community service,” says DA O’Malley. “The services provided at the Family Justice Center are life-changing for many of the victims and survivors who we work with. Access is key, and this partnership will ensure that anyone who needs us has a secure mode of transportation to and from the Center.”

“We want to fill mobility needs for those who need it most and we thank District Attorney O'Malley for her leadership in finding ways to help survivors of intimate partner and sexual violence get to secure locations, like the Alameda County Family Justice Center” said Traci Lee, Senior Public Policy Manager, Lyft. “By working together with leaders like DA O'Malley, we can continue to activate LyftUp and provide transportation access to those who need it.”

The Alameda County Family Justice Center is made up of over 30 onsite and over 50 offsite agencies and programs that provide services and support to individuals and families who have experienced domestic violence, sexual assault and exploitation, child abuse, elder and dependent adult abuse, and stalking. It is located at 470 27th Street in Oakland.

In order to access the ride from Lyft:

Call 510 267-8800 to reach a navigator at the Family Justice Center. The navigators have the codes from Lyft and will either make the code available or arrange for the ride.
