Sober ride - FREE cab ride home

The Washington DC area is blessed to have Sober Ride, a program provided by W.R.A.P.

If you're enjoying yourself a little too much at a bar or party and get too drunk to drive home you can call a cab company and Sober Ride will pay the cab fare home.

Currently, SoberRide operates during the December/January holiday season, St. Patrick's Day, Independence Day and Halloween.

WRAP's SoberRide provides a free cab ride home up to a $50 fare.
Callers are financially responsible for anything over $50

Why can't we get WRAP's SoberRide to operate up here where we live in Frederick County?

Why is the cut off for SoberRide in Rockville?

I mean, come on, the City of Frederick is Maryland's second largest city!

Since 1993, WRAP has provided over 41,010 safe rides home.
