Updated 3/17/2020 — WRAP announced today (Tuesday) that its 2020 St. Patrick’s Day SoberRide campaign is suspended due to concerns about the coronavirus.
Earlier: To keep party-goers safe on St. Patrick’s Day, Lyft teamed up with several businesses and organizations in Northern Virginia to offer free and discounted rides back home.
The promotion will be valid from 4 p.m. on Tuesday (March 17) until 4 a.m. on Wednesday, according to a press release, which added that rides up to $15 will be covered with a code that will be released shortly after the promotion starts.
Washington Regional Alcohol Program (WRAP), a local non-profit, is one of the main sponsors of the program. The nonprofit aims to eliminate drunk driving and underage drinking, according to its website.
To take advantage of the promotion, users must be over the age of 21 and have the app downloaded on their phones. People can find the code online.
Roughly 40% of all U.S. traffic deaths involve drunk drivers, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Planning to wear the green and drink the beer on Sunday? If so, there are plenty of options for doing just that around the Tysons area.
Just about any bar you walk into on St. Patrick’s Day will have some craic and a ready bottle of Jameson. But to have a proper pint of Guinness poured you may have to fight the crowds at one the area’s Irish bars.
Here is what’s happening at Paddy Barry’s Irish Pub (8150 Leesburg Pike, Tysons), the Old Brogue Irish Pub (760-C Walker Rd, Great Falls) and Ireland’s Four Provinces (105 W Broad St, Falls Church).
St. Patrick's Day is coming soon. Join us for a Weekend of Entertainment!
