SoberRide offers free travel during the holidays

The Washington Regional Alcohol Program's annual effort to keep inebriated people from driving will begin on Friday, offering free taxi rides home in communities throughout the area.

The "Holiday SoberRide" program offers the service from 10 p.m. through 6 a.m. through the holiday season until 6 a.m. on New Year's day. People over the age of 21 should call 800-200-8294 or #8294 on an AT&T wireless phone. The participating cab companies should not be called directly. Participants are required to pay any amount above $50.

Calls for service must originate in Montgomery and Prince George's Counties; the District, Arlington, Fairfax, Prince William and Eastern Loudoun county. A SoberRide call operator will direct requests to the correct participating cab company. Those companies are: Alexandria Yellow Cab, Barwood, Fairfax Yellow Cab, Loudoun Yellow Cab, Manassas Cab Company, Red Top Cab Company, Silver Cab of Prince George's County, Yellow Cab of District of Columbia, and Yellow Cab of Prince William County.
