Uber released a report on the top 10 travel destinations in the District in 2017.

Between free rides on ride-sharing apps and extended operating hours on public transportation, D.C. residents celebrating New Year’s Eve have multiple ways to get home Monday night after drinking.

The District’s SoberRide program partnered with Lyft and several other companies to provide $15 off rides home with the promo code NYEDC18, WTOP reported Sunday. The code is valid for the first 2,250 Lyft passengers to use from 8 p.m. to 4 a.m. Passengers must be at least 21 years old and take a trip in the D.C. area to redeem the offer.

Uber and Miller Lite are partnering to offer free rides to smartphone users who download the Uber app for the first time, WTOP reported. Using the promo code MILLERTIME18, first-time users will receive $15 off their first ride through Feb. 27.

The Metro will also stay open until 2 a.m., two and a half hours later than it would close on a regular Monday.
