EUGENE, Ore. -- Eugene and Springfield are teaming up with community organizations to offer safe and discounted rides home on New Year’s.
The Technology Association of Oregon, Better Eugene-Springfield Transportation and the City of Eugene Parking are organizing a Safe Rides Home campaign.
They are working with Uber, Oregon Taxi and Lane Transit District to make sure you have plenty of choices to get home without getting behind the wheel.
You can ride LTD for free from 5 p.m. to midnight on New Year’s Eve.
Starting at 8 p.m. until 3 a.m. on New Year’s Day, you can get a $5 discount on a ride from Uber using the app code “SAFERIDE2020” and a $10 discount on a ride from Oregon Taxi using the app code “SAFERIDE”.
Anyone in the Eugene-Springfield area can use the promotions.
The Technology Association of Oregon says hundreds of residents in Eugene-Springfield used the program last year, resulting in a 25% decrease in DUII incidents in December 2018 and January 2019.
