Get free Uber and Lyft rides for St. Patrick’s Day and the NCAA Tournament

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- In an ongoing effort to combat impaired driving, the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute is teaming up with Uber and Lyft to distribute $15 ride credits from March 12th to April 5th

Six cities, including South Bend, are eligible to receive the credits. Bloomington, Evansville, Fort Wayne, Indianapolis, and West Lafayette are also a part of the campaign.

Through this pilot program, the first 10,000 Uber and Lyft rides from March 12th to April 5th will receive the credit to discourage impaired driving.

Credits can only be redeemed between 5 p.m. and 3 a.m., as the institute report that is when the highest number of impaired driving-related collisions occur.

“We’re making 10,000 rides available based on the number of lives that are lost every year due to drunk driving in the U.S.,” said Devon McDonald, ICJI Executive Director, “Our goal with Sober Ride Indiana is to prevent those tragedies from occurring by making it easier for Hoosiers to reach their destinations safely.”

To redeem the ride credit, visit Sober Ride Indiana then follow the instructions under “Redeem Ride Credits” for the service being used.

Users are financially responsible for anything over $15, and possession of the code does not necessarily guarantee the availability of the credit.
