Image that reads Auburn Lyft Late Night Smart Ride Program

The Auburn Lyft Late Night Smart Ride Program is designed to ensure all currently enrolled students have access to safely travel from campus to their on or off campus residence. Students will be provided up to a $10 discount per ride inside the below university-designated service areas. Please note the destinations must be residential locations, not commercial locations.

If you are a currently enrolled student with the Lyft app already downloaded simply update your email address within the settings menu under “account”. You will then receive an email from Lyft to your TigerMail account requesting verification. Still are experiencing issues with verifying your account? Please fill out this form to report any issues with your Auburn Lyft Late Night Smart Ride Program credits, or to request the credits be added to your account.

There are three different university-designated service locations which are eligible for the $10 discount.


    pick-up for student center transit station

pick-up for RBD Library Deck location

  • Weekday Program: 25 rides/per month
  • Students can choose between the two locations to be picked-up/dropped-off: Student Center Tiger Transit station or RBD Library Deck location
  • Sunday – Friday from 8 p.m. – 12 a.m. (midnight)





    • pick-up for location 2

  • Weekend Program: 10 rides/per month
  • Students will be picked-up (only) between S. Gay St. and Wilmore Dr.
  • Thursday –Saturday from 8 p.m. – 1 a.m.







  • Once a student has been picked up at one of the two designated services areas, the $10 discount will be applied within the below 4-mile drop-off radius. If the drop-off location is outside the 4-mile radius, the student will be prompted to make a payment for the difference in the cost.
