St. Patrick’s Day is one of Boston’s biggest holidays. With over 20% of Bostonians claiming some kind of Irish heritage, there will be quite a few revelers around town from the pubs to the parade.

As people make their way to their festivities, Uber is teaming up with Mother’s Against Drunk Driving (MADD) to encourage everyone to party safely, plan ahead and get a designated driver. “St. Patrick’s Day is one of the biggest celebrations in communities across the Commonwealth,” said Mary Kate DePamphilis, MADD Massachusetts Program Manager. “As you head out to celebrate, MADD is encouraging everyone to leave their keys at home and chose alternatives like Uber to get to and from their celebrations.” Click here to learn more on how to celebrate safely on St. Patrick’s Day.

One of the busiest events of the weekend will be the South Boston parade. Get to and from the parade quickly and safely by riding smart with our tips. Please review the map below for an idea of areas to avoid riding on Sunday. Most importantly, be sure to walk a few blocks away from road closures and the parade route to an accessible street when requesting your ride home.
