Ride Safe Jupiter

To encourage responsible behavior and reduce the number of impaired drivers on our roads, the Town has recently partnered with UBER to offer discounted fares for people in the Jupiter area during peak times. The program, called “Ride Safe Jupiter”, will kick-off with a pilot program on 4th of July weekend.

Through the use of the discount code “J4JUP2019”, riders can get $15 toward an UBER ride on the evenings of July 3rd, 4th and 5th.

The discount can be applied to two rides per person (round-trip) during the time the code is active. The code will only be available and active during the specified dates and times and is limited to the immediate Jupiter area. Information on the program will be shared at various Jupiter restaurants and establishments and through social media and this webpage.

If the pilot is successful, the Town will offer the same discount program during additional holidays and peak times to encourage responsible celebrating. To see announcements of future program dates, please re-visit this webpage.

In its 2020 Strategic Plan, the Jupiter Town Council identified a strategic initiative to “enhance the safety of all residents and visitors by reviewing opportunities for rideshare programs to discourage impaired driving.”  This initiative was a result of a review of the Jupiter Police Department’s crime statistics, which showed a 48% increase in DUI arrests from 2017 to 2018. To view the complete FY 2020 strategic plan and the additional strategic initiatives identified by the Town Council, visit the strategic plan webpage.

Ride Safe Jupiter is made possible by the Town of Jupiter, Jupiter Police Department and through the following partners:
