Why Take a Ride on Bud?

Lyft and Budweiser first joined forces in 2016 to curb drunk driving. Last year, Budweiser donated $1 to safe-ride programs every time someone used the hashtag #GiveaDamn.

“This partnership encourages passengers to make the right choice about how they get home and celebrates the drivers who make it possible.”​ Budweiser declared in a blog post announcing the expanded partnership.  

This offer is limited to 10,000 round-trip rides each weekend, so we suggest visiting the site at exactly 2 p.m. on Thursdays to get your credits. With your credits in hand, you can make some awesome plans for the weekend.
