Rideshare apps Uber and Lyft are offering free rides to residents of the Buffalo neighborhood where a gunman opened fire on a supermarket Saturday, killing 10 people and wounding three others.
New York Gov. Kathy Hochul said on Sunday that the area is now "a food desert" since the Tops Friendly Market is shut down as law enforcement investigates the mass shooting.
"We are in touch with Uber and Lyft and they have offered to take people from these zip codes if they need to go to a grocery store in another area, because a lot of people in this neighborhood, they walk to the grocery store, they don't have transportation," Hochul said at a press conference. "So to those families, we'll be reaching out and making sure the information is there on how to get access."
