Leave the Driving to Us this St. Patrick’s Day

March 16, 2016 / Seattle

Let luck be on your side this St. Patrick’s Day by choosing a reliable ride home.

We’re partnering with the City of Seattle on a pilot program to help prevent alcohol-impaired driving in our community. To kick off our collaboration, we’ll be at Kells Irish Pub in Post Alley from 8pm to midnight. Stop by and check out our Uber breathalyzer kiosk to learn more about the legal blood-alcohol limit.

Had a couple green beers? Try our breathalyzer and we’ll get you home free.

We’re also offering special uberHOP routes so you’ll have multiple options for catching a ride at the end of the night.


  • $2 – Kells to Lower Queen Anne (Queen Anne Ave N & Mercer)
  • $2.50 – Kells to Capitol Hill (E Pike Street & Broadway)
  • $4.00 – Kells to Ballard (NW Market & 15th)

If you’re new to Uber, enter in the promo code MYRIDEHOME and you’ll get $15 off your first ride. Make sure to take a ride before March 20 to access this discount.

“We’re committed to providing reliable transportation for Seattleites year-round and we’re proud to join forces with the city to help prevent traffic casualties on St. Patrick’s Day and other occasions,” said Brooke Steger, General Manager of Uber Washington

Every year, Uber driver-partners provide reliable transportation for hundreds of thousands of local residents and visitors. A study by Uber and Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) found that driver-partners are empowering people to make better choices. After uberX driver-partners hit the road in Seattle in 2013, DUI arrests decreased by 10% the following year.

“We want to make it easy for people to leave their keys at home and also give them the peace of mind that they’re not putting others at risk.” – Brooke Steger

Don’t count on luck. Make a smart choice and leave the driving to us.
