Be Safe and Be Smart, Borderstanis. If you are out and about for New Year’s Eve, please drink responsibly and remember, you can get free taxi rides.
The Washington Regional Alcohol Program (WRAP) is offering free taxi rides — the program began December 16 — up to $30 through January 1.
Details from WRAP
“WRAP’s 2011 Holiday SoberRide program will be offered nightly from 10:00 pm to 6:00 am beginning Friday, December 16, 2011 and running until January 1, 2012. To receive a free cab ride home (up to a $30.00 fare), please call 800-200-8294 (TAXI) or #8294 (TAXI) on your AT&T wireless phone. Please refer to the SoberRide information listed below for important details concerning this program. You must be 21 or older to use the SoberRide service.
“Important note: All requests for SoberRide service must be called to and dispatched from 1-800-200-8294. Do not call a taxi company directly for SoberRide service as the ride will not be covered under this program.”
Uber Car Service
Another option is to sign up for Uber, a car service that will basically make you look like a baller to all your friends and get you home safely. Whatever you do, please don’t drink and drive Borderstanis!
