No questions will be asked except for a home address.

KRIS has teamed up with Andrews Distributing, Dos XX, Green-N-Go Cabs and Yellow Cab to provide free rides home to anyone who feels their consumption of alcohol could impair their ability to operate a motor vehicle safely.

From 9 p.m. until 3 a.m. tonight, call or text (361) 299-9999 and provide a location to be picked up. A cab will take you straight home, no questions asked. Riders can text the number again to check on the approximate wait time for their cab or to cancel the cab if they have found another safe ride home.

Those utilizing the service will be taken home only, not to another bar or party.

On New Year’s Eve 2017, more than 800 riders using the service arrived home safely thanks to the free cab rides that were provided.

Let’s make it a safe and happy New Year.
