The Washington Regional Alcohol Program’s “SoberRide” initiative will be in operation for Halloween, with free Lyft rides home offered to those who may have had too much to drink.
The initiative will be in operation from Saturday, Oct. 30 at 10 p.m. to Sunday, Oct. 31 at 4 a.m. as a way to keep local roads safe from impaired drivers during this traditionally high-risk holiday.
During the six-hour period, area residents age 21 and older celebrating with alcohol may download Lyft to their phones, then enter a SoberRide code in the app’s “Promo” section to receive their no-cost (up to $15) safe transportation home.
The SoberRide initiative also is offered during St. Patrick’s Day, Cinco de Mayo, Independence Day and throughout the winter-holiday season. For information, see the website at www.soberride.org.
