The ride home can be a safe and easy one with the help of Uber and the New Jersey Licensed Beverage Association this year.
Participating NJLBA bars and taverns throughout the Garden State will offer free soft drinks and other benefits to designated drivers who sign up for membership cards with the non-profit HERO Campaign online or at special HERO Night NJLBA events.
Uber will provide free rides up to $20 for first-time riders who sign up through the NJLBA, and will bolster its efforts to increase the number of drivers available near bars and taverns at peak late night hours on weekends. Here’s how to claim your free ride.
Happy Thanksgiving Eve! Let’s party!
