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”, kicked-off with a pilot program on 4th of July weekend. The program returns this November for Thanksgiving week.
|Through the use of the link (coming soon), riders can get $15 toward an UBER ride on the evenings of November 27th, 28th, 29th, and 30th.|
The discount can be applied to two rides per person (round-trip) during the time the link is active. The link 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.
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.
