(2/11/2019) - In celebration of Black History Month, ride-share company Lyft announced a free ride initiative.

Throughout February, Lyft will provide one free ride up to $10 to Black history museums, memorials and relevant cultural sites in cities across the country.

"Much has been done, much remains to be done, and Lyft is honored to step up today to do our part to continue building inclusive and more connected communities while helping provide greater opportunity for the leaders of tomorrow," Lyft said in a press release.

The company said it's also celebrating the one-year anniversary of its partnership with Black Girls Code, an organization committed to increasing the representation of African-American women in technology.

The full list of participating cities, designated locations and codes are listed on the Lyft website.

The promo codes will expire on Feb. 28 at 11:58 p.m.
