EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - If you can't find a designated driver on New Year's Eve, a local law firm and taxi company are ready to get you home safely.
If you're out celebrating in Evansville at Ri-Ra, Time Out or at Smitty's, Unity Taxi Service will take you home for free from 11 p.m. until 4 a.m.
These 3 locations are where cab stands will be set up, but you can be anywhere in Evansville and call Unity for a ride.
Woods and Woods Injury Lawyers have sponsored this program every New Years Eve for the past 17 years.
"When Woods and Woods law firm came to us about doing free rides home, we were all about doing that. This is something where it's better as a whole for us to do this. People like to go out and celebrate on New Years Eve, we just want to get everybody home safely," said Unity's Cory Miller.
A few things to remember:
- Cab rides are for adults who might try to drink and drive. You MUST call Unity Taxi at (812) 421-9999 and mention the Safe Ride program to get a free ride home.
- Cab rides are available from bar or restaurant to your home and not to other drinking locations.
- Due to the high number of calls on New Year's Eve, rides cannot be guaranteed; however, every attempt will be made to accommodate all requests.
