Round Up & Donate

Round Up & Donate is a feature that lets you to round up a ride fare to the nearest whole dollar and then donate the difference to a cause of your choice.

For example, if you have a $12.75 fare, Lyft will round up the total to $13. The difference of $0.25 will be donated to a worthy cause.
