Well Ride - Rideshare Opportunity for Off-Campus Therapy

September 18, 2023

Students who need a ride to off-campus therapy might benefit from Well Ride, a program that provides free Lyft rides for on-campus students to off-campus therapy.

The Well Ride Program is currently managed by UNC CAPS and was initiated by Undergraduate Student Government to help students overcome barriers related to transportation to off-campus therapy appointments. 


  • At least 18 years old
  • Lives on campus (Granville included)

  • Met with a staff member at CAPS who approved you to apply for the program or emailed capsreferrals@unc.edu for information.

Current funding for this program ends at the end of the Fall Semester 2023. Funding for this program is limited and will be distributed on a rolling basis throughout the semester. Once you have completed the application, CAPS will make a final determination of your eligibility and provide information on the next steps to request Lyft rides if you are eligible.
