On Wednesday, Chicagoans will experience record-breaking winter weather as the temperature dips well below zero. (It'll be colder here than it is in Antarctica, if you haven't already heard.) To prepare for the extreme conditions, Chicago businesses have shuttered and the city has set up emergency warming stations for those who don't have a warm place to retreat to.

Lyft is making it easy for Chicagoans to access those stations by partnering with the city and United Way of Metro Chicago to provide free rides to warming centers through Friday, February 1 at 11:59pm. Use the code CHIJAYDEN19 (named for Winter Storm Jayden) to redeem two rides at up to $25 each to city-designated warming centers.

Additionally, the city of Chicago advises residents to call 311 if they encounter homeless individuals who do not have shelter and may be struggling with the cold. Dial 911 if there is an immediate threat to that individual's life.

Stay warm out there, Chicago!
