Safe Ride Home Program

The words "SAFE RIDE HOME" in all caps, with various icons related to bars, entertainment, taxis, eating, drinking, and public transportation.
Safe Ride Home is a partnership between the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT), taxis, transportation network companies (like Lyft and Uber), the Portland Police Bureau, and bar owners to offer reduced-cost rides on targeted holidays and events to prevent people driving under the influence.


Nearly half of Portland traffic deaths involve impairment. Through Vision Zero initiatives like Safe Ride Home, PBOT is helping to reduce impaired driving. During past events PBOT’s Safe Ride Home program helped over 3,300 Portlanders celebrate responsibly and get home safely. During the 2022 holiday campaign, there were no fatal crashes related to impairment in Portland.

Make sure Safe Ride Home is part of your plans. For those who plan to celebrate, we encourage you to help make our streets safer by planning alternative rides.  

  • Taxi rides:  Users can get a paper coupon from a bar hosting an event where Safe Ride Home flyers are present.  The paper coupon is presented to a taxi driver in Portland, and a fixed dollar amount will be taken off their fare. Partners include Broadway Cab, Flat Cab, PDX Yellow Cab, and Radio Cab.
  • Lyft rides: Users will receive a certain dollar amount off a trip starting in Portland with a valid promo code. 
  • Uber rides: Users will receive a certain dollar amount off a trip starting in Portland with a valid promo code.
