The ride-share service currently offers free rides during natural disasters and other emergency situations through its Relief Rides program. However, thanks to a $1.5 million pledge announced Wednesday by company President John Zimmer, over the next year, the Relief Rides program will be expanded beyond emergency situations.

Specifically, Lyft’s program will provide free trips to low-income people and veterans trying to get to important appointments like job interviews and doctor visits. In a Wednesday blog post announcing the change, Lyft acknowledged that “people need help beyond times of crisis as well. There are those with acute transportation needs every single day.”
