Experience a more productive and affordable commute through Lyft Line, courtesy of your tax-free CRA.

Millions of Americans depend on Lyft every day for safe, fast, and reliable rides around town. Wouldn't it be great if you could experience that same convenience and comfort every day during your daily commute, rather than sitting on a crowded subway or in traffic in your car? 

Thanks to our partnership with Lyft and their low-cost ride-share service, Lyft Line, participants in select cities can do just that. And the best part? They can save money, because they can use the pre-tax dollars in their Ameriflex commuter reimbursement account to cover the cost of the ride.*

Where is Lyft Line available? The Lyft Line program is currently available to Ameriflex participants in Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Nashville, New Jersey, New York City, Philadelphia, Portland, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, Silicon Valley and Washington D.C. If you don’t see your city, don’t worry — we’re working hard to bring this benefit to commuters and providers coast to coast.

*All claims for Lyft Line expenses are subject to federal rules regarding qualified transportation benefits (Consult Treas. Reg. 1.132-9 for more information.)

What is Lyft Line?

Lyft Line lets you share your ride (and split the cost!) with other Lyft riders. You'll know your fare before you even leave, and best of all, now you can pay for your ride using your pre-tax CRA dollars. It's a quick and comfortable alternative to mass transit and public transportation!

Rely on public transportation for your daily commute?

Have more power and control over your schedule. No more waiting for your ride, or worrying about missing it -- you can request an Lyft Line ride at any time! 

Drive your own vehicle to and from work?

Let someone else take the wheel so you can get some work done. You'll experience a more productive commute, while also helping your city "go green" by having one less car on the road each day.

How does it work?

Once you download Lyft (available in the App Store and through Google Play), add your MyAmeriflex Card as a payment option.

When you are ready to commute, select 'Lyft Line' (rideshare) as your ride option and choose your MyAmeriflex Card as the payment option if it is not set up as the default.

Please note: When your MyAmeriflex Card is selected as a payment option, you will only be able to request a 'Lyft Line' vehicle. You cannot use any other ride options.


If you live in one of the eligible cities but your employer hasn't opted in to add Lyft Line to their CRA plan, talk to your Plan Administrator -- opting in is free and easy!

The MyAmeriflex Card is issued by The Bancorp Bank, member FDIC, pursuant to license by Mastercard International Incorporated. Mastercard is a registered trademark of Mastercard International Incorporated. Card cannot be used everywhere Debit Mastercard cards are accepted.
