Governor Larry Hogan recently announced a new $10,000 grant program to encourage residents to rideshare during the holiday and avoid drunk driving.
Starting Nov. 24, Governor Hogan announced a new partnership between the Maryland Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Administration’s (MDOT MVA) Highway Safety Office and the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) to provide 1,000 Uber ride credits worth $10 each to Marylanders for a sober ride home. Maryland is one of five states to be awarded this grant.
“No one should ever get behind the wheel of a car and drive impaired, and we hope that this creative new initiative will encourage more Marylanders to make better choices,” said Governor Hogan. “This holiday season, it’s critical that we work together to protect our families, friends, and neighbors.”
These $10 rideshare credits will be available beginning today at 4 p.m. through 11:59 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 1. To redeem the $10 credit, Marylanders can open the Uber app, choose Wallet from the menu on the top left corner, and scroll to the Promo Codes section. Marylanders can use the code “MAKEAPLAN2021,” and $10 will be applied to their account. Each rider is limited to two $10 credits during the campaign while the supplies last.
