Free and discounted rides this New Year’s Eve

Celebrate New Year’s Eve in Portland with Safe Ride Home travel options:

Safe Ride Home is a partnership to prevent impaired driving. More than half of traffic deaths in Portland involve people traveling impaired.

$20 cab coupons will be available New Year’s Eve at many Old Town area venues. Must use Broadway Cab app (Android/iOS) for Broadway Cab discount. $10 rideshare discount will be available through Lyft and Uber apps.

Alcohol and drug impairment is a major contributor to death and injury on our streets. More than half of deadly crashes in Portland involve people who are intoxicated.

Vision Zero actions to prevent impaired driving include:

  • Work with driver-for-hire services (including taxi cabs, transportation network companies and other private companies), transit providers and bar owners to develop a targeted DUII program in Portland’s entertainment district and other hotspots linked to DUII citations 
  • Allow pre-payment for morning parking in specified districts (in combination with Action I.1) to encourage impaired drivers to leave their cars overnight without concern of getting a parking ticket or being towed
  • Secure funding to increase the number of police officers trained as Drug Recognition Experts
  • Utilize marijuana or alcohol tax revenue to increase funding for DUII drug and mental health preventions and for treatment services
  • Increase access and expand referrals to the DUII Intensive Supervision Program (DISP)
