Easing the process: The service will ensure that patients taking part will arrive and leave on time for clinical trials.

Lyft already provides transportation services for patients at certain US hospitals seeking non-urgent treatment, but this new service is a first-of-its-kind partnership and one, according to both companies, that could conceivably solve one of the biggest problems related to conducting and maintaining clinical trials: access to transport.
