Safe Cab program offers free rides home
WORTHINGTON — The Worthington Safe Cab program, a partnership between local law enforcement and business sponsors, will give free rides home to New Year’s Eve revelers on Tuesday night.
The Safe Cab will operate from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.; people need to call the Worthington Taxi Service, 372-4300, to secure a ride. The service will operate from party points around the city, including private residences, but is not intended as a shuttle between venues.
“This is not a ride around town,” stressed Nobles County Sheriff Chief Deputy Chris Heinrichs. “They will give you a ride home, not to the next bar.”
Off-duty law enforcement officers will be behind the wheel of the Safe Cabs to ensure people get home safely.
