From an email:

“If you are trying to fight off the winter chill with a chilled beverage of your own and partake in a bit too much “mystery punch” or adult eggnog over the Holiday season, stay safe and call SoberRide!

Together with the Washington Regional Alcohol Program (WRAP) SoberRide initiative, AT&T is proud to provide free taxi rides (up to $30) to anyone over 21 in the greater Washington, DC area nightly from 10pm until 6am starting Friday, December 13th, through New Year’s Day.

AT&T customers can call #WRAP to get a safe, free ride home, while others can dial 800-200-8294 (TAXI).”

    i’ve never actually taken a ride with Sober Ride. oh, sure, i’ve called them lots of times over the years. and they NEVER show up. it’s a scam, right??

      I got one last year during the same time-frame these were covered. on the earlier side between 10-11pm after holiday party. As with any dispatch service (don’t think uber with GPS triangulation and assignment with closest driver), you’ll need 15-20 minutes lead time to get a cab to be sent over. Mine came in a little under 15 in petworth. I think if you try to dispatch a cab on NYE through this service, it won’t give any priority over regular dispatch and they might not have any available. Hailing a cab sometimes might result in faster service but you wont get the free ride.. how it goes…

    Has anyone ever actually succeeded at getting one of these? Because I’ve never heard of a case.

      I got one about 4 years ago. it’s the only time I’ve tried. I think this service causes people to get drunker and stupider than they would otherwise. Does it save lives? I dunno.
