Toward that end, Zendrive, together with Lyft, Uber, Lime, Bird, Juno, HopSkipDrive, and nonprofits StopDistractions.org, Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) and Together for Safer Roads, today announced a partnership — #FundMyStreets — that’ll award $50,000 to programs to improve public safety.
“As parents, caregivers, and members of our school communities, our greatest responsibility is to keep kids safe,” Matus said. “Our mission is to use data to make roads safe.”
U.S. applicants have until November 26 at 11:59 p.m. PT to submit a road safety plan proposal. Finalists, who will be notified by November 30, have to produce a 30-second video via Twitter and tag it “@zendrive “and “#FundMyStreets.” The clip that receives the most likes and retweets — and that passes the judges’ muster — will be announced as the winner at a ceremony on December 16.
