Tampa residents in new 'Ditch Your Car' program can earn $500 in city transportation credit

- HART and Lyft are teaming up to challenge Tampa residents to ditch their cars for 30 days.

hose who sign up for the “Ditch Your Car” program can receive nearly $500 in transportation credit, and that can be used to catch a ride with the ridesharing service, Lyft. The companies said participants will just need to rent a city’s Zipcar or hop onto the public HART transportation bus.

Residents can register at ditchwithlyft.com/Tampa to sign up, and only 50 people will be chosen to participate. Once chosen, you’ll receive an email with program details, including your transportation credit, which includes $300 worth of Lyft credit, one month passes for the HART bus line and TECO Line Streetcar System, and a one-month membership with Zip.

The goal is to reduce congestion, help the environment and give people a way to save money on gas. The challenge runs until November 6.
