RamRide Secure

As CSU students continue to see an increase in financial insecurity, RamRide is uniquely positioned to support students with their transportation security needs. Research shows us that students may have difficulty completing errands, and are less likely to access other basic needs if they do not have adequate transportation. This pilot program is not intended to fill all transportation security gaps but serve as a complement to other transportation options available to students.   

RamRide Secure further supports transportation security needs of CSU students. This pilot program is sponsored in generous part from ASCSU. 

  • Students can apply on RamLink to receive $200 in Lyft credits (in addition to the RamRide x Lyft benefits)
  • Applications are accepted on a rolling basis with an initial priority deadline of Friday, February 26th
  • Decisions are subject to committee review
  • Lyft credits will expire on 12/31/2021
  • If Lyft credits are awarded, all funds must be depleted before applying again
  • Credits can be used on Lyft Bikes and Scooters wherever they are available through the Lyft app!


With RamRide Secure, you will receive $200 in Lyft rides (in addition to your 4 rides/month with RamRide x Lyft) that can be used to your discretion! You can use those additional funds to cover as many rides as you’d like.

You will! As of now, you will have access to the $200 until the end of the calendar year.

You should be able to access those funds using the email address you provided when filling out the RamRide Secure application. Please note that you must have a Lyft account with that same email address to have access to those funds.
