8th annual free ride program
Designated Drivers of Buffalo will provide free transportation home for partygoers and their vehicles in the event they have had too much to drink on New Year's Eve. This free service will be available to anyone calling from downtown Buffalo from midnight to 4 a.m. on New Year's Eve.
Designated Drivers of Buffalo is partnering with the Law Offices of William Mattar to provide this community service to help curtail drinking and driving in WNY.
Since opening in October 2008, Designated Drivers of Buffalo has provided more than 10,000 rides to customers who want to be responsible when going out.
"This service has certainly removed drunk drivers off our streets, potentially reducing DWI arrests and, more importantly, saving lives" said Michael Mule, CEO of Designated Drivers of Buffalo.
When you call Designated Drivers of Buffalo, it will dispatch a team of uniformed drivers to your location. One driver will then transport you home in the comfort and convenience of your own vehicle, while the other driver follows behind to pick up his partner after the drop off.
Free service from downtown is available to anyone on a first-call, first-service basis. To request transportation, individuals should call 716-202-2222.
It is recommended people who need a ride call at least one hour in advance.
Service will be available outside of downtown Buffalo at normal service rates.
To ensure customer safety, all employees of Designated Drivers of Buffalo are required to pass a complete background check, driving record check, and driving safety training prior to giving their first ride. Drivers are uniformed with ID tags when they arrive to pick up customers.
