Washington, DC

From an email:

“We wanted to share the partnership between Lyft and Washington Regional Alcohol Program (WRAP) to ensure the DC community is not drinking and driving during the holidays. From now through January 1, 2019, DMV residents can get a free ride with Lyft (up to $15) between 8:00 pm and 4:00 am by visiting SoberRide.com.

“New Year’s Eve is a big night for both riders and drivers in DC. We encourage Lyft riders to ride smart and plan ahead for a responsible ride home when ringing in 2019 with friends and family,” said Steve Taylor, General Manager for Lyft Mid-Atlantic. “We’ll also be there all night to support drivers on the road who want to take advantage of this additional earning opportunity.”
