Ride share service Lyft is making it easier for its members to celebrate Black History Month by offering free rides to various Black history museums, memorials and cultural exhibitions.

During the month of February, Lyft will provide one free ride of up to $10 (or $10 off) to historically Black sites, including Harlem’s Apollo Theater in New York and the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C.  

The company is also celebrating the one-year anniversary of its partnership with Black Girls Code, an organization committed to increasing the number of Black women in the tech industry.

“This effort to empower the next generation of young women of color has raised over $350,000 to date,” reads a statement from the service. “Lyft’s commitment to diversity and inclusion extends from our offices to the communities in which we serve. We believe the more we understand the diverse needs of our workforce and communities the better we are positioned to provide services, solutions, and products that make a positive impact. Leveraging diversity and inclusion also enables us to hire and retain top talent and win in a diverse marketplace.”
