Bernalillo County and Other Partners to Offer Uber Rides For Mardi Gras and Valentine’s Day

02/13/2018

Bernalillo County and the New Mexico Department of Transportation are joining with Uber, Cumulous Media and DaVita Medical Group to offer patrons free or low-cost Uber rides tonight and tomorrow.

Patrons need to download the Uber app to their phones and enter the code ABQMG18. Rides will be available from Feb. 13 from 1:30 p.m. to Feb. 14 at 2 a.m. The trip must start or end anywhere in Albuquerque to receive one trip with up to $10 off.

For Valentine’s Day, enter the code ABQLOVE18 to receive the Uber ride. Rides will be available from Feb. 14 from 1:30 p.m. to Feb. 15 at 2 a.m. The trip must start or end anywhere in Albuquerque to receive one trip with up to $10 off. Again, the trip must start or end anywhere in Albuquerque to receive one trip with up to $10 off.

Bernalillo County has contributed $55,000 to this new effort, helping to pay for the first $10 of each Uber ride. The average Uber ride in the Albuquerque area runs less than $10. If the cost for the ride exceeds $10, the patron will have to cover the remaining amount.

The county’s financial contribution comes from liquor excise taxes that are collected and distributed to New Mexico counties by the New Mexico Tax and Revenue Department on a quarterly basis.

The $55,000 Bernalillo County is providing for this effort will help fund the program until the end of the current fiscal year.
