BALTIMORE — Aetna on Monday said it will team with Lyft to offer $100,000 in free rides to underprivileged Baltimore area public school students and their families.

The initiative will be launched in high risk rural and urban neighborhoods across the nation where affordable transportation can be hard to come by.

Despite most schools starting the year virtually, Aetna says the program aims to help students and their families with essential traveling needs.

So here's how it works.

Students and families in the targeted areas should have received Lyft codes, valued at $20 and $40, from their area schools superintendent.

Recipients have a 60-day window to spend the full amount of the voucher.
