If your St. Patrick's Day plans include tipping a few in Northern Virginia or the District, here's a telephone number you may want to have with you: 800-200-8294 (TAXI).

That's where to call for a free cab ride home from 4 p.m. Monday, March 17, until 4 a.m. Tuesday as part of the Washington Regional Alcohol Program's SoberRide.

A few thing to know:

  • You must be 21 or older to use the SoberRide service.
  • All requests for SoberRide service must be called to and dispatched from 1-800-200-8294.  Do not call a taxi company directly for SoberRide service as the ride will not be covered under this program.
  • WRAP's SoberRide provides a free cab ride home up to a $30 fare. 
  • Callers are financially responsible for anything over $30.
  • In our area, all calls must originate in the District of Columbia; Arlington, Fairfax, Prince William and Eastern Loudoun Counties in Virginia; or the Cities of Alexandria, Falls Church, Fairfax, Manassas and Manassas Park.
  • You cannot reserve a SoberRide or schedule a pickup in advance.
