Safe Ride Home PDX

Safe Ride Home is a partnership to prevent impaired driving

The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) is working with taxis, transportation network companies, Police and bar owners to offer reduced-cost rides home on targeted holidays with the goal of preventing people from driving under the influence. 

Impairment is a key Vision Zero focus area; more than half of traffic deaths in Portland involve people traveling impaired.

In 2018, PBOT has offered Safe Ride Home travel options on New Year's Eve, St. Patrick's Day and Cinco de Mayo. 

Celebrate responsibly during Cinco de Mayo weekend!

The Safe Ride Home program is offering people the following discounted and inexpensive travel options from May 4 to May 6:

  • Up to $20 savings on taxi rides with Radio Cab, Broadway Cab, Union Cab, New Rose City Cab, New Green Cab, PDX Yellow Cab and United Independent Cab. Coupons will be available for pickup during the Cinco de Mayo weekend from the Cinco de Mayo celebration on the Waterfront, the participating businesses below, and Portland Police Bureau officers in the Central City.
  • A $5 savings on rides with Lyft and Uber. Riders can access the discount by entering a promo code into their apps. The promo code can be retrieved from the Cinco de Mayo celebration on the Waterfront, the participating businesses below, and the Portland Police Bureau officers in the Central City. Promo codes will be available beginning at 7 p.m. on Friday, May 4 through 4 p.m. on Sunday, May 6.
