Sheriff Craig Apple shared on his personal Facebook page that along with partners Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, CDTA, Uber, Lyft, and Decrescente Distribution, they have kicked off the 34th Operation Safe Ride. Since its inception 34 years ago, there hasn't been an alcohol-related fatality on New Year's Eve as well as DWI's cut in half and they're hoping to continue that into 2019.

  • Lyft is offering a credit to new users with the code RIDESAFE518
  • Martin, Harding & Mazzotti is offering their free cab rides again by calling 1-800-LAW-1010
  • Uber is also offering a credit to new users with the code ALBANY20NYE
