A Safe Way to Get Home New Year’s Eve
Community Partners Sponsor “Dial-A-Ride”
For residents in the Pioneer Valley who need a free ride home this New Year’s Eve, Dial-A-Ride will again be available.
The United Way of Pioneer Valley is once again teaming up with Yellow Cab Company of Springfield, Williams Distributing, and Rock 102/Lazer99.3 to offer the Dial-A-Ride program.
The program begins on New Year’s Eve at 8 p.m. and continues through 6 a.m. New Years Day.
During these hours, Yellow Cab will offer a free ride home to anyone in their service area. The Yellow Cab number is 739-9999.
The Dial-A-Ride program seeks to reduce the number of alcohol-related traffic accidents in the Pioneer Valley during the New Years Day holiday, encouraging Pioneer Valley residents to make the right choice and get home responsibly.
For the past 29 years, the United Way has partnered with Pioneer Valley businesses to coordinate the program. Williams Distributing helps with publicity materials and distributes the materials to hundreds of their customers. Hundreds of local restaurants, bars, and package stores will place publicity posters in their establishments.
