Free Lyft Rides for Drunk Coloradans through the Holiday Season

In a move to promote responsible partying and curb drunk driving incidents, Budweiser, the renowned beer-brewing giant, and Lyft, the popular ridesharing platform, have joined forces to offer Coloradans an exciting initiative during the holiday season. This collaborative effort aims to provide accessible and affordable transportation options to revelers, ultimately reducing the instances of drunk driving.

From September 16th until the culmination of the year, Budweiser and Lyft will be releasing free ride codes every weekend on their Facebook and Twitter accounts. These codes are specifically tailored for the nightlife scene and can be redeemed between 10 p.m. and 2 a.m. on weekends. The process is simple – users can click on the code, which will then redirect them to a dedicated site for redemption. The redeemed code is automatically deposited into the user’s Lyft account, ready for future use.

The generosity of this initiative is noteworthy, offering free rides up to $10 or a $10 discount on any rides exceeding that amount. This partnership ensures that those planning a night out in Colorado can enjoy the vibrant nightlife without the worry of arranging transportation or making the potentially dangerous decision to drive under the influence.

But why Colorado? This targeted initiative is part of a strategic decision by Budweiser and Lyft to focus their efforts on specific states, including New York, Illinois, and Florida, in addition to Colorado. These states have been identified as having high rates of drunk driving fatalities, making them crucial areas for intervention. By concentrating their efforts in these locations, the partnership aims to have a more significant impact on reducing the incidence of drunk driving.

As Coloradans gear up for festive celebrations and nights on the town, Budweiser and Lyft are working together to ensure the safety of all partygoers. The availability of free and discounted rides during peak party hours provides a responsible alternative to getting behind the wheel while under the influence.

In addition to promoting safe transportation options, it’s important to acknowledge the role of local businesses and organizations that contribute to the safety and well-being of communities.
