The Frederick County Council on Tuesday voted unanimously to greenlight a county application for a $250,000 state grant to help expand a local ride-hailing program for low-income families and individuals. The funding would come from the federally funded Maryland Community Development Block Grant Program, established to help county and municipal governments pay for development projects and improve public facilities and services, according to county documents. Ride United, a program through the United Way of Frederick County, offers some Lyft riders up to $25 in credit per one-way ride. It has provided thousands of free or reduced-fare rides.
