A night of drinking can end up in disaster for anyone who\’s had too many but doesn\’t want to leave their car. But a new program in the area will get a driver for those in need.
In honor of Hailo\’s launch in Alexandria, Va., first-time riders have a free $20 credit to spend on a ride in the D.C. area.
Free cab rides through SoberRide will be offered in the Washington metro area from 10 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 31 until 4 a.m. Friday, Nov. 1.
Some D.C. taxi drivers say now that they\’ve installed credit card machines in their cabs, they haven\’t received thousands of dollars in credit card fares.
All D.C. taxis have to have credit-card readers by the end of August, but so far the cab companies have been slow to adopt the new technology.
Free cab rides will be offered for those needing a ride home following Fourth of July festivities in the D.C. area.
