Free Lyft Rides to Combat Drunk Driving on St. Patrick’s Day

Local nonprofit Washington Regional Alcohol Program (WRAP) and ridesharing app Lyft have teamed up again to offer free rides to keep intoxicated drivers off of the road on St. Patrick’s Day.

As part of an effort to combat drunk driving, WRAP will be sponsoring free Lyft rides on Sunday night and early Monday morning.

From 4 p.m. on Sunday (March 17) until 4 a.m. on Monday (March 18), rides up to $15 are free with the use of a promo code — one ride per person.

Since the St. Patrick’s Day SoberRide program aims to keep prevent alcohol-related crashes, Lyft riders must be at least 21 years old to claim the offer. The code, which works for any rides inside the D.C. coverage area, is valid for the first 1,500 Lyft passengers who enter the code.

WRAP and Lyft previously partnered to combat drunk driving during the holiday season.
