In 2018 we launched the SafeWise for Safe Rides Home campaign. The campaign targets holidays when deaths and accidents from impaired driving spike.

We provide ridesharing credits to communities that see the biggest jumps to help cut down on impaired driving and make our nation’s streets safer for everyone.

Campaigns run

in Wyoming, South Carolina, North Dakota, New Mexico, Alabama, Montana, Texas, Mississippi, Arkansas, and Louisiana
