St. Patrick’s Day SoberRide Free Taxi and Traffic Advisory for Parade and Festival Sunday


From a press release:

If you plan on making a big night of it this St. Patrick’s Day, don’t rely on luck to get home safely. Together with the Washington Regional Alcohol Program (WRAP) SoberRide initiative, AT&T is proud to provide free taxi rides (up to $30) to anyone 21 and over in the greater Washington, DC area who may have had one too many Irish Car Bombs or pints of Guinness home.

AT&T customers can call #WRAP to get a safe, free ride home, while others can dial 800-200-8294 (TAXI). The program will be in effect beginning at 4:00 p.m. Sunday (3/17) and continue until 4:00 a.m. Monday morning (3/18).

WRAP’s SoberRide provides greater Washington, DC residents a safe way home on high-risk holidays, including the December/January holiday season, St. Patrick’s Day, Independence Day and Halloween. Last St. Patrick’s Day, a total of 606 Washington-area residents took advantage of the program, preventing a would-be drunk driver from hitting the road every 71 seconds.
