Washington DC area - Washington Regional Alcohol Program (WRAP) has partnered with Lyft to provide WRAP’s SoberRide service in the Washington-metropolitan area. Residents can use the free safe ride service SoberRide from 7 p.m. July 4 to 2 a.m. July 5.
DC residents who are 21 or older celebrating can download Lyft to their phones, then enter the code SOBERJULY4 in the app's 'Promo' section to receive their no cost (up to $15 fare) safe transportation home. The SoberRide code is valid for the first 1,500 Lyft users who enter the code.
SoberRide provides a free cab ride home up to a $15 fare, callers must pay for any fare over $15.
The SoberRide program is also offered on Cinco de Mayo, St. Patrick’s Day, Halloween and the winter holidays this year starting on December 15, 2017, through and including New Year’s Eve.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration complied data from 2015 that showed over a third (36%) of all U.S. traffic deaths involve drunk drivers on July 4th.
Be safe and enjoy our Nation's birthday!
