The ridesharing service Uber is offering free rides to San Diegians this Cinco de Mayo weekend.

The swipe-and-go application has teamed with Mothers Against Drunk Drivers (MADD) to provide safe travels for riders in the throes of celebration.

The free rides must be made within the “splash zone,” which include Pacific Beach, North Park, Gaslamp Quarter and Hillcrest, plus a few other areas.

Uber launched their multiple passenger service UberPOOL in San Diego late last April. This function allows people going to the same place to share their journeys with other app users.

In order to score your free fare you will need to enter the code “SAFECINCO,” starting Thursday, May, 5 at 5 pm through Sunday, May 8 at 2 am.

If you are traveling outside the splash zone area, you will receive $5 off of your trip. 

How it Works:

  • Enter the code SAFECINCO in the Promotions section of the app.
  • Request uberPOOL between Thursday, May 5 at 5 pm and Sunday, May 8 at 2 am.
  • Enter your pickup and dropoff locations. When you uberPOOL within the splash zone, you’ll get a free ride. If you start or end your uberPOOL trip outside of the splash zone, you’ll get $5 off.
  • Celebrate and get home safely with uberPOOL.
