Group Offers Free New Year’s Rides In D.C.
WASHINGTON (WJZ) – A local nonprofit group is offering New Year’s Eve revelers in the Washington region a free ride home.
The Washington Regional Alcohol Program says its annual SoberRide program begins at 10 p.m. Thursday and ends at 6 a.m. Friday, with taxi cab companies providing free service to those age 21 or older. That goes for residents in the District of Columbia and the counties of Montgomery, Prince George’s, Arlington, Fairfax, eastern Loudoun and Prince William.
The group, which includes law enforcement and business officials, says the aim is to keep would-be drunken drivers off the roadways.
The offer is good for fares up to $50. The service is available through the SoberRide phone number: 800-200-TAXI.
