IDOT, in cooperation with Auburn PD, to offer free, sober rides during holidays

In cooperation with IDOT, the Auburn police department is extending ride sharing credits in Sangamon County through the Lyft program.

If driving over the holidays is a necessity and individuals want to make sure to have a sober ride home, a free Lyft ride will be available.

From November 25th through January 1st, $20 ride credits for Lyft will be available to help provide safe and sober travel options in Sangamon County if travel is required.

To keep everyone safe, Lyft is requiring everyone in the vehicle to wear masks, with riders in the back seat and windows rolled down, if possible.
