TRENTON, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — New Jersey residents who lost a personal vehicle because of last week’s storm can now get free or discounted Uber and Lyft rides.

Gov. Phil Murphy announced a partnership with the rideshare companies to provide transportation over the next two weeks.

The service is available to access essential services, like grocery shopping and medical appointments.

Residents can text “NJIDARIDE” to 898-211 to request a Lyft or Uber or call 211 if they don’t have a cell phone.
