This will probably not be your taxi driver.

You may adore your fancy-pants smartphone, but as much as AT&T loves that, it turns out the company also loves your life -- and wants you to keep living it.

AT&T is co-sponsoring SoberRide with the Washington Regional Alcohol Program this Halloween weekend.

In case you've... uh... never, ever gone out on a holiday weekend before, here's how SoberRide works: You can call for a free cab ride (up to $30), provided you're age 21+ and in the D.C. area.

The service is available many holiday weekends -- including this Saturday night, Oct. 29 from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.

Participating taxi companies hail from the following locations:

  • Alexandria
  • Arlington
  • District of Columbia
  • Fairfax County
  • Montgomery County
  • Loudoun County (eastern)
  • Prince George's County
  • Prince William County

AT&T customers can call #TAXI to ask for a ride; others can dial 800-200-TAXI. There can be a long wait, so may sure you're patient or have a back-up plan... e.g., carrying cash for one of those pesky cabs that actually charge money.
