MCAO and Uber Offer Safe, Legal Alternative to Drinking and Driving on St. Patrick’s Day

PHOENIX - Building on the success of its “Save Lives, Don’t DUI” campaign, the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office is partnering with ride-sharing service Uber to offer St. Patrick’s Day revelers an incentive not to drink and drive.

Between now and St. Patrick’s Day on Thursday, March 17, first-time Uber users who download the Uber app can get $20 off their first trip by entering the promo code “SHAMROCK2016.” The $20 discount is enough to cover the vast majority of rides requested in the Phoenix metro area. For every new customer who takes a ride using the discount, Uber will donate $5 to the Arizona chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD).

“This is the equivalent of a free Keep Out of Jail app that will allow people to enjoy St. Patrick’s Day without posing a risk to themselves or others on our roads and highways,” said Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery. “If you plan on celebrating this holiday at your favorite pub, don’t rely on the luck of the Irish to get home safely. Take an Uber instead.”

“We are extremely pleased to extend our partnership with the MCAO for St. Patrick’s Day,” said Steve Thompson, General Manager of Uber Arizona. “When Phoenicians have access to a safe, reliable and affordable transportation option like Uber, they make smarter choices that keep our streets safer.”

Uber is also extending a special offer to its current customers during this period: existing Uber users who enter the promo code “LUCKYYOU” will be entered to win a pair of $50 discounts on future rides – two winners will be selected for this prize.

Nearly 1,000 people took advantage of a similar campaign MCAO and Uber launched during the holiday season of 2015. For more information on the Save Lives, Don’t DUI campaign with Uber, visit t.uber.com/shamrock2016.
