Proposal & Content Manager
At Lyft, our mission is to improve people’s lives with the world’s best transportation. To create the best ride for all, we start with our own community by creating an open, inclusive, and diverse organization where all team members are recognized for what they bring.
Lyft Transit, Bikes & Scooters (Multimodal) Team Overview
Public transit is the backbone of a vibrant city. That’s why Lyft partners with cities and transit agencies across North America to expand access to transit, and shape a future where cities are built around people – not cars. Our Transit, Bikes & Scooters team leads our growing investments in multimobility, which currently span 85+ transit partnerships and the largest micromobility (bikeshare/scooter) programs in the United States.
Through our transit partnerships, we have been able to pioneer innovative service models that are helping our partners expand mobility options, especially in communities that have historically faced transportation barriers. These partnerships include dozens of senior mobility, paratransit, first/last-mile, late night, and suburban transit programs.
