ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Bernalillo County has partnered with the NMDOT and Uber for the "Take a Ride on Us" program offering a special ride credit for Thanksgiving.

Bernalillo County residents can use the code "THANKS2021" to receive a credit of up to $10 off one ride. A maximum of 2,500 eligible rides is available on a first-come, first-served basis, beginning Nov. 24 at noon and ending Nov. 29 at 3 a.m.

A credit of up to $15 off one ride is available statewide with the "ENDWI 2021" code.

Each credit only works for rides but does not cover a tip or any Uber Eats orders.

The program encourages people to take a safe ride option and avoid driving under the influence after consuming alcohol at Thanksgiving celebrations. The program has provided the option to more than 20,000 Albuquerque riders since 2017.

The program is a partnership of Cumulus Media Albuquerque, Uber, Bernalillo County, ENDWI and Ron Bell Injury Lawyers.
