Lyft offers flat fares for people living far from grocery stores

Walmart and Uber teamed up last year, for example, while Asia's Grab has expanded to include grocery delivery. Today, though, Lyft is launching a national Grocery Access Program that aims to make healthy food more cheaply and easily accessible to millions of Americans. Some 2.3 million people live in low-income, rural areas more than 10 miles from a supermarket -- without access to affordable and reliable transportation they face a significant barrier to healthy eating.
