SoberRide underway until New Year's Day: get free cab rides home

SoberRide, the great program that offers free cab rides to folks (with the idea of avoiding drunk driving, biking or walking) is underway again, offering free cab rides up to $30 until 6 am on New Year's Day. So there's basically no reason for you to make a bad decision with your trip home.

Here's more from the organizers. It's a great service.

The weather outside may be frightful, but that doesn’t mean the roads should be.

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).

WRAP's SoberRide provides greater Washington, DC residents a safe way home on high-risk holidays, including the December/January holiday season, St. Patrick’s Day, Independence Day and Halloween.

Remember…”Grandma got run over by a Reindeer”, not a Range Rover, so let’s help keep everyone safe on the roads this Holiday season!

Can anyone use this service or do you have to be sloshed?

Anybody as far as I know, though it's intended for non-sober folks. I'm sure they wouldn't turn anyone away.

They clarified: "Anyone 21 + up can use the service. Our goal is to make the roads safer."
