MCAO Partners with Uber to Offer Safe & Legal Alternative to Drinking & Driving

PHOENIX- As calendars fill up with holiday parties and New Year celebrations, one partnership wants to help you schedule an essential part of every night out… a safe way home. Building on the success of its “Save Lives, Don’t DUI” campaign, the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office is once again partnering with Uber to offer a great holiday incentive to not drink and drive.

Between now and New Year’s Eve, first-time Uber users who download the Uber app can get a $15 credit toward their first trip by entering the promo code “MCAOHoliday.” Those who already have the app can enter the promo code “WINUBER” and be entered to win two free rides up to $50 each on New Year’s Eve. Uber will also donate $5 to the Arizona chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) for every new customer who takes advantage of this discount.

“This time of year should remain one of celebration and joy for our community, and we’re hoping this incentive will convince people to enjoy the holidays without putting themselves or others at risk on our roads,” said Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery. “Celebrate this holiday safely by taking your phone, but leaving your car keys at home and using Uber or another safe ride home.”

“Uber is thrilled to partner with the Maricopa County Attorney's Office and MADD AZ to help reduce DUIs in Arizona,” said Steve Thompson, General Manager of Uber Arizona. “Uber is dedicated to providing safe, reliable options to ensure individuals across the Grand Canyon State get home safely this holiday season.”

More than 700 people took advantage of the “Save Lives, Don’t DUI” campaign with MCAO and Uber in December last year. For more information on the campaign visit t.uber.com/savelivesdontdui
