If you're planning on going out this Wednesday night, don't even think about drinking and driving. Between the hours of 6pm on Wednesday, November 22nd and 6am on Thursday, November 23rd, Staten Island residents can enter the promo code "SISAFERIDE" to unlock a free Uber ride to and from their destination (up to $15 each way). The rides must start and end in Staten Island.
The "SI Safe Ride" initiative, which was created through a partnership between our office, Uber, District Attorney Mike McMahon, the NYPD, and Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), aims to combat driving under the influence on Staten Island. The initiative is sponsored by the Forest Avenue BID, the South Shore BID, and the Richmond County Bar Association, the Staten Island Rotary Club, Li Greci's Staaten, and The Vanderbilt.
