The Tavern Taxi program is once again offering free rides to and from your favorite restaurant or bar on Cinco de Mayo, May 5, 2012.
Since joining with the Tavern Taxi program last Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Eve’s and St. Patrick’s Day, Bernalillo County has safely transported 172 passengers to and from their destinations.
On Cinco de Mayo, residents can take advantage of the free rides by calling 505-999-1400 for pick-up. Reservations are encouraged. The server or bartender calls for the taxi when the patron is ready to go home.
“This project has been a great success because it offers a viable alternative to drinking and driving,” says Katrina Hotrum, Department of Substance Abuse Program Director. “It is making a difference in how people plan their evening out and how they get home safely without endangering lives.”
Bernalillo County Department of Substance Abuse and the New Mexico Hospitality Retailers Association are collaborating to support the Taxi Tavern program.
