Anyone can see a free improv show with a free roundtrip ride to ​The BIG Theater with Lyft

BALTIMORE, MD –  The nonprofit Baltimore Improv Group (BIG) brings free rides to nearby Baltimore audiences in partnership with Lyft.

“Local nonprofits work hard year-round to improve lives in their communities — often without the funding larger organizations have,”Lyft shared in their blog. “To recognize the contributions of local nonprofits and ease transportation barriers they face, we award grants in the form of Lyft ride credit to a variety of local nonprofits each quarter. “

Lyft created its community program to help give back to the communities by helping with transportation issues affecting communities within our city.

To receive a free code, anyone can fill out a form to receive a code for two uses worth $10 each for a roundtrip to The BIG Theater in Station North. The BIG Theater is a former bowling alley and later was home to The Everyman Theater. BIG took over the venue in 2017.

The Station North Arts and Entertainment District became an area and official arts and entertainment district in 2002. Art-focused organizations run theaters and galleries with former warehouses converted into apartments.

The district spans the three historic neighborhoods of Charles North, Greenmount West, and Barclay.
