How do I access the Sober Ride Home in the Metro Richmond Area?

  • If you don’t already have the Lyft app on your phone, download it here.
  • On New Year’s Eve, the Allen Law Firm will post one code to the Allen & Allen Facebook page at the beginning of each hour, from 10 p.m. to midnight, for a total of three codes. Each code may be redeemed by up to 150 people.
  • Enter the code in the LyftPromos” tab, then click “Apply.” After clicking the “Apply” button, you have redeemed the code. That code is good for one ride home for up to $50 until 5 a.m. on January 1, 2020.
    • Please note that Sober Rides only apply to those going home within 20 miles of Richmond.

Do you have to use the code the hour you get it or can you use it any time during the night?

  • Once the code has been entered into the Lyft “Promos” tab and you have clicked the “Apply” button, you have successfully redeemed the code. You may use it on your ride home anytime on New Year’s Eve until 5 a.m.

What if we have multiple final destinations? Can we use the code to make more than one stop?

  • No. The promo code is only good for your trip home, and not to multiple destinations or to another drinking establishment.

When does the promo code expire?

What do I do if the code is used up?
