Bernalillo County- The Tavern Taxi program is once again offering free rides to and from your favorite restaurant or bar on St. Patrick’s Day, Sunday, March 17, 2013.

On St. Patrick’s Day, residents can designate their sober driver in advance, and take advantage of the free rides by calling 505-999-1400 for pick-up. Reservations are encouraged. The server or bartender calls for the taxi when the patron is ready to go home.

“Driving impaired is simply not worth the risk,” says Katrina Hotrum, Department of Substance Abuse Program Director. “Our goal is to provide an alternative transportation option and encourage residents to plan ahead with a sober designated driver.”

Bernalillo County Department of Substance Abuse and the New Mexico Hospitality Retailers Association are collaborating to support the Taxi Tavern program.
