NMDOT invites Mardi Gras revelers to ‘Take a Ride on Us’

ALBUQUERQUE – The New Mexico Department of Transportation and its partners are promoting a safe ride home program to combat drunk driving in New Mexico.

Since 2018, NMDOT has partnered with Bernalillo County, the city of Albuquerque, Cumulus radio stations and Uber have provided more than 26,000 safe rides home by supporting the “Take a Ride on Us” program for people living in the Bernalillo County metro area.

The program offers 500 participants living in and around Albuquerque an Uber credit of up to $15, two rides per person beginning noon Tuesday, March 1 through 3 a.m. Wednesday, March 2.

Participants will access the credit through the Uber app using the code: BEADS22. The code is available for download on Wednesday, Feb 23 at 6 a.m.

Tips are not included, and refunds are not provided for trips costing less than the $15 credit. The code is also not valid for use with Uber Eats.

Working together, we can ENDWI.
