Anyone planning on imbibing on Cinco de Mayo may want to bookmark this page: the Washington Regional Alcohol Program (WRAP) is offering its free SoberRide program for the upcoming holiday.

Cinco de Mayo is, as the name suggests, this Sunday, May 5. The SoberRide program will start at noon on Sunday and continue until midnight.

“During this twelve-hour period, area residents ages 21 and older celebrating with alcohol may download the Lyft app to their phones then enter the SoberRide code in the app’s ‘Payment’ tab (under the ‘Add Lyft Pass’ option) to receive their no-cost (up to $15) safe transportation home,” SoberRide said in a release.

The program is offered around the D.C. area, including Alexandria and the rest of Northern Virginia.

The code will be posted at 11 a.m. on Sunday at the SoberRide website.

WRAP runs the SoberRide program on all major holidays, including St. Patrick’s Day, Independence Day, Halloween, and through New Year’s and other winter holidays.
