Celebrate responsibly ‘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 2017, NMDOT in partnership with Bernalillo County, the city of Albuquerque, Cumulus radio stations and Uber have provided nearly 26,000 safe rides home by supporting the “Take a Ride on Us” program for people living in the Bernalillo County metro area.

For celebratory events surrounding St. Patrick’s Day, the program is offering 1,000 rides for people living in and around the Albuquerque metro area, an Uber credit of up to $10, two rides per person beginning Friday, March 17 at 10 a.m. through Monday, March 20 at 2 a.m.

Participants will access the credit through the Uber app using the code: LUCKY23. The code is now available for download.

Tips are not included, and refunds are not provided for trips costing less than the $10 credit. The code is also not valid for use with Uber Eats.

Working together, we can ENDWI.
