    “Take A Ride on Us” Program Offers Albuquerque Metro Residents a Safe Ride Option Over Cinco de Mayo

    ENDWI, Bernalillo County, Uber, and Cumulus Media Albuquerque Continue Fight against Drunk Driving

    Bernalillo County, N.M. – The New Mexico Department of Transportation, Bernalillo County, Uber, Ron Bell Injury Lawyers and Cumulus Media Albuquerque, today, announced details for a safe ride option for Cinco de Mayo celebrations. The program titled “Take A Ride on Us” provides Albuquerque Metro residents the ability to take advantage of a safe ride option instead of driving under the influence during the Cinco de Mayo weekend in which alcohol consumption is common.

    Rather than drive under the influence, from noon on May 3rd through 3 a.m. on May 6th. Albuquerque metro residents can open the Uber app and use the code ABQCINCO19. By using the code, riders will receive a credit of up to $10 off for up to two trips. The maximum amount of trips available is 800. First come, first served. The credit can only be used for rides, not Uber Eats, and the discount does not cover tip.

    “Take A Ride on Us” was created by Cumulus Media Albuquerque. The program has seen massive success through the incredible partnership of Uber, Bernalillo County, and ENDWI. Listeners will be reminded about the code throughout Cinco de Mayo on Cumulus Media Albuquerque’s radio stations: 94.5 FM and AM 770 News Radio KKOB, 93.3 KOB-FM, 92.3 KRST, 103.3 eD FM, Magic 99-5, 96.3 Nash Icon, 95.9 FM and AM 610 The Sports Animal, and 1050 KTBL.

    Through this public-private partnership it’s easier than ever to avoid driving under the influence. Since the program began in the summer of 2017, “Take A Ride on us has provided a safe ride option to over 14,500 riders in the Albuquerque Metro area since the inception of the Take a Ride on Us program.

    Cumulus Media Albuquerque, Bernalillo County, ENDWI, Ron Bell Injury Lawyers and Uber, encourage Albuquerque area residents to take advantage of this program rather than drive under the influence. By drinking responsibly and using the “Take a Ride on Us program,” together we can ENDWI.
