For riders trying to educate themselves this International Women’s Day or Women’s History Month, Lyft is offering discount codes to visit significant monuments, museums, statues, women-owned businesses, and more.

As part of Lyft’s promotion, the company is recognizing women both in history and still living and fighting for equity — no matter if through local government or a local business. Ride-hailing app users can get $10 off rides to places connected to women’s rights, fights, struggles, and achievements. 

Former senior advisor to President Barack Obama Valerie Jarrett sits on Lyft’s board, so she shared some inspirational places in the capital city she recommends visiting, like the Rosa Parks statue.

In San Francisco, the code can take you to the Women’s Building community center or the San Francisco Women Artists Gallery. In the East Bay, you can ride to the Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front National Historical Park.

Take a ride to women-owned businesses.

Here are the codes to plug into the app for metro areas across the country. The promo is good through the end of March.

Friday is International Women’s Day.
