Alternative transportation options available for Cinco De Mayo revelers in Phoenix

- It's Cinco de Mayo, and multiple alternatives to driving are available for those who plan to drink on Friday, besides the designated driver option.


The Maricopa County Attorney's Office has partnered up with ride-sharing company Lyft to give a discount for Lyft rides.

Those who download the Lyft app for the first time can get $5 off their first 10 rides, by entering the promo code "CINCOPHX", and those who already have the Lyft app can enter the code "CINCOPHX17" to receive 5% off two rides.

The discounts began on April 28, and ends May 5.

The Lyft app can be downloaded on the iTunes app store (for Apple devices), and on Google Play (for Android devices).
