This New Year’s Eve, we’re partnering with Mothers Against Drunk Driving to make getting a safe ride easier than ever.
The holidays are a time to enjoy with friends and family, but they can also be one of the most dangerous times of the year for drunk driving accidents. That’s why we’re mobilizing our driver community to get out on the road and provide rides to those who need them. We’re also asking you to commit to getting home safe — whether you request a Lyft, hop on public transit, or designate a sober driver — and encourage others to do the same. For everyone who pledges to help keep the streets safe this year, we’ll donate $1 to MADD* to support their important mission to end drunk driving.
For the second year in a row, Lyft co-founder, John Zimmer, will be driving on New Year's Eve and this year will be joined by a special co-pilot (his mom!). Inspired by MADD’s work to stop drunk driving through education and advocacy, John and his mom will join other Lyft drivers who have pledged to give much-needed safe rides.
So however you travel this New Year’s Eve, join us in taking this important pledge — encourage your friends and family to join you, and commit to always choosing a safe ride home.
*Lyft’s maximum donation to MADD is $10,000.
