Lyft, Maricopa County partner to bring people home safe this St. Patrick’s Day
PHOENIX — If you’re planning on celebrating St. Patrick’s Day this weekend, Maricopa County and a ride-sharing service want to get you home safely.
Through Saturday, Lyft is offering first-time users $5 off their first four rides by entering the promo code “BELUCKY.” The company is also offering those who already have the Lyft app 20 percent off of two rides by entering the code “BELUCKY18.”
The Maricopa County Attorney’s Office partnered with Lyft to provide customers with these deals as a part of their “Save Lives, Don’t DUI” campaign.
“We’re thrilled to partner with the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office to promote Lyft as a responsible option for people around St. Patrick’s Day,” said Drena Kusari, Lyft’s Phoenix general manager.
“This offer shuld be embraced by people as a way to enjoy St. Patrick’s Day without posing a risk to themselves or others on our roads and highways,” said Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery.
“If you plan on celebrating this holiday at your favorite pub, don’t rely on the luck of the Irish to get you home safely.”
Lyft has offered similar discounts in the past. Almost 1,500 people took advantage of the campaign last year, and more than double that number used the codes in 2016.
