Longview Transit to Provide a ‘Safe Ride Home’ on New Years Eve
It’s time to say goodbye to 2012 and welcome in 2013 at midnight tonight! For the fifth year in row, Longview Transit is offering Longview residents the opportunity to take part in the ‘Safe Ride Home’ program. The program offers anyone who lives within the city limits a free ride New Years Eve between 8p and 3a New Years morning to any destination within the city.
To participate in the program, you must call Longview Transit to set up an appointment. They will come to your home, pick you up, take you to the party and return to take you home. Longview Transit General Manager Scott Lewis tells CBS 19, “Longview Transit has been providing Safe-Ride-Home transportation on New Year’s Eve for several years now, and it continues to be a great service for the community. Thanks to the community sponsorship, we are able to provide a free alternative to getting behind the wheel.”
To take part in ‘Safe Ride Home’ with Longview Transit, please call them at 903.753.2287 ext, 10.
