If I get a ride with a driver from a rideshare company like Lyft or Uber, does that count in the Challenge?
No. Even if such drivers are asking for a donation rather than a fare, they are essentially freelance taxi drivers. While transportation network companies have adopted the word "ridesharing" to describe their service, the word is more accurately applied to carpooling or vanpooling, in which people with the same destination ride with one another instead of taking separate vehicles, and often take turns driving. Such arrangements save gasoline and reduce emissions. A vehicle-for-hire situation, in which a driver is called upon to chauffer an individual to that individual's destination, does not fit that description.
