Why Budweiser Is Offering 150000 Free Round-Trip Lyft Rides

Why Budweiser Is Offering 150000 Free Round-Trip Lyft Rides”

Every Thursday through December 31, Budweiser will release a ride code on its Facebook and Instagram accounts. Lyft users that are at least 21 years old can claim two $10 one-way ride credits to use Thursdays through Saturdays between 5 p.m. and 5 a.m. Every weekend, Budweiser will provide 10,000 free round-trips on Lyft in nine states as well as Washington, D.C.

Throughout late 2016, Lyft and Budweiser ran a partnership aimed at keeping drivers off the road when they've had too much to drink.

Despite numerous public service announcements, education programs, and common sense, people continue to drive drunk - especially during the holidays.

Beyond the nation's capital, the codes will work in New York, Colorado, Illinois, Florida, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Missouri, Texas, and Georgia. The credits can be redeemed for rides taken between 5 p.m. and 5 a.m. on Thursday, Friday or Saturday.

"The whole intent behind [having round-trip fares] is to encourage people to plan ahead", Katja Zastrow, VP of Corporate Social Responsibility & Better World at Anheuser-Busch, tells Thrillist.

For the second year in a row, Lyft will be offering thousands of free rides in states they operate, including in MA.
