Alert Cab program offers free cab, Uber rides on New Year's Eve
New Year’s partiers in Rockland, Orange and Sullivan counties can get a free cab or Uber ride home.
The annual Alert Cab program is sponsored this year by Dana Distributors in Goshen, Mothers Against Drunk Driving and Uber.
Participants must be at a bar or restaurant within 10 miles of their house and hand over their car keys to the bartender.
The program is available Dec. 31 from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. and gives a free $10 taxi fare or $15 Uber voucher by scanning the QR code.
The program has helped more than 2,400 partiers get home safely since 1989.
