This holiday season, the Maryland Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Administration’s (MDOT MVA) Highway Safety Office is partnering with the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) to provide 1,000 Uber ride credits worth $10 each to Marylanders for a sober ride home. Maryland is one of five states awarded the grant by GHSA.

The $10 rideshare credits will be available from 4 p.m. Wednesday, November 24, 2021, through 11:59 p.m. Saturday, January 1, 2022. To redeem the $10 credit, Marylanders can open the Uber app, choose Wallet from the menu on the top left corner, and scroll to the Promo Codes section. After inputting the code MAKEAPLAN2021, $10 will be applied to the user’s account. Each rider is limited to two $10 credits during the campaign while the supply lasts.

Last year, 120 people died and more than 2,600 were injured on Maryland roadways due to impaired driving. Even though 2020 saw substantially lower traffic volumes during the pandemic, 14,170 people were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, with 1,345 of those arrests occurring between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day.

Riders and drivers are reminded that Uber’s mask requirement remains in place. For more information, visit For more information about GHSA, go to or visit the Facebook and Twitter accounts.
