Ordering a ride through Lyft.

Lyft, the fastest growing on-demand transportation service in the United States, has partnered with Rowan College at Burlington County (RCBC) to offer a Lyft Line program for students who will receive discounted rates for rides to or from RCBC’s facilities and designated pick up and drop off locations in the area.

 

“Through our partnership with Rowan College at Burlington County, Lyft is offering students a new option for increased mobility, access and convenience. Lyft Line provides a reliable resource for students who need a solution to transportation issues,” said Ann Ferracane, General Manager of Lyft New Jersey.

 

Students who are new and existing users of Lyft are eligible for a 50 percent discount up to $25, courtesy of RCBC. All trips must start or end at one of the college’s campuses in Mount Laurel, Mount Holly, Willingboro or Pemberton or at one of the following off-campus locations as long as a college facility is part of the trip:

  • Moorestown Mall
  • Cherry Hill Mall
  • Riverline Stations in Beverly and Riverside
  • Cinnaminson Library
  • Lumberton Crossroads Plaza
  • Centerton Square (Mount Laurel)

 

“Our students are constantly on the go as they make their way to classes, work and throughout the community,” RCBC Acting President Michael Cioce said. “Our partnership with Lyft gives our students a way to get to their destination quickly and efficiently. Transportation issues should never prevent a student from attending the top-ranked community college in New Jersey.”

 

Burlington County Freeholder Linda Hughes, who serves as education liaison to the college and is a former RCBC trustee, said the partnership will help more students access RCBC.

 

“This is an innovative solution to help students access the region’s premier college in the New Jersey’s largest geographic county,” Hughes said. “This will help more students to take advantage of the tremendous opportunities available to them at Rowan College at Burlington County.”
