PRESS RELEASE. Free sober rides on New Year’s Eve
RICHMOND, Va. — A family owned Cab company is doing its part again this year to help partygoers get home safely on New Year’s Eve.
Veterans Cab President William Barrett said he wants to offer sober rides home for party-goers between 10 p.m. on Dec. 31, 2021 and 3 a.m. on Jan. 1, 2022.
Call Veterans Cab at 804-275-5542, download the My RVA Taxi app, or go to VeteransCabRichmond.com to request a free ride home in Richmond.
Barrett pointed out that the free ride is limited to $50 and is not valid for transportation to another “drinking establishment.”
“We rely on these streets 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to keep us going, so we just want to do our part to help keep them safe for everybody,” Barrett said. “Richmonders should know that there is a safe alternative to driving drunk and ride share apps; we are one of those options. All of our drivers have been screened and approved by the Richmond city police department, as well as the vehicles we operate. We’ve been serving Richmond since 1947, so this isn’t new to us.”
