BERNALILLO COUNTY, N.M. (KRQE) – Bernalillo County and the New Mexico Department of Transportation are teaming up with Uber, Cumulus Media and DaVita Medical Group to offer free or low-cost Uber rides over the holiday season.

For New Year’s Eve, enter the code ABQNYE17 to receive the Uber ride.
The trip must start or end anywhere in Albuquerque to receive one trip with up to $10 off. The average Uber ride in the Albuquerque area runs less than $10. If the cost of the ride exceeds this, the patron will have to cover the remaining amount.
Bernalillo County has contributed $55,000 to the effort. This money comes from liquor excise taxes that are collected and distributed to New Mexico counties by the New Mexico Tax and Revenue Department on a quarterly basis.
