Budweiser Is Giving You Free Rides Every Weekend!
Getting home this weekend is about to get a lot easier, and it’s all thanks to two companies that actually give a damn (yeah, I said it–you’ll see why soon). Budweiser and the ride-sharing app Lyft, are joining forces to offer 150,000 free round-trip Lyft rides to people in 10 states. The goal is to reduce drunk driving, keep the roads safe, and most importantly, make sure you make it home alive.
The free rides are part of Budweiser’s bigger “Give a Damn. Don’t Drive Drunk” campaign (see, I told you) that aims to reduce drunk driving. The 150,000 round-trip rides will be available to use on the weekends and during the holidays until the end of 2017. People over the age of 21 can use it in the following states: New York, Colorado, Illinois, Florida, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Missouri, Texas, Georgia, and Washington DC. To get the free ride credit starting Sept. 21, you’ll need to stay tuned on Budweiser’s Facebook and Instagram page each Thursday at 2 p.m. ET to find out the promo code. You can then use the $20 ride credit for rides on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 5 p.m. to 5 a.m. local time.
“We are proud to continue our partnership with Lyft to implement evidence-based solutions that can have a real impact on reducing drunk driving,” said Katja Zastrow, vice president of corporate social responsibility at Anheuser-Busch, in a statement. “Making it home safe at the end of the night starts with getting a ride at the beginning of the night, so we want to encourage people to plan ahead.”
So go ahead and have your fun. And when you’re ready to call it a night, call your Lyft and make sure that you and your friends stay safe.
This Lyft’s for you.
