Local Bars Provide Free Rides Home

Posted: Updated:

Local bars have been teaming up with Taxi 9000 for the last several years to offer a voucher for a free ride home to customers who have had too much to drink.

The voucher protects the bars from any liability for over serving a customer, and more importantly, it keeps people safe by eliminating the risk of drunk driving. Some bars will even cover a cab ride outside of the city limits.

"We just give the cab ride home. I know you can buy vouchers from McQuade Distributing, you know, that pretty much takes care of you inside city limits, but we offer a cab ride home. We pay the whole bill," says Broken Oar owner Stacey Keller.

Bar owners say that once it gets close to closing time, cabs are few and far between. So, calling ahead is always a smart idea, just to ensure a safe ride home.
