Arrive Alive provides free rides home up to a $65 dollar fare for anyone in Summit County who has had too much to drink while celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday.

WHAT: FREE Cab Rides for Summit County Residents for the Thanksgiving Holiday (up to $65)

WHEN: From 6pm Wednesday November 21 to 6am Sunday November 25

HOW: Call 330.475.7888

“Thanksgiving is a time for friends and families to get together and have fun. Driving drunk should not be part of the celebrations. As Summit County Prosecutor my mission is to help keep our streets safe,” said Prosecutor Walsh. “Thanksgiving Eve is typically one of the top days of the year for drinking alcohol. I want to make sure the holiday season does not begin with tragedy. I would like to thank our sponsors the law firms of Slater & Zurz, Kisling Nestico & Redick, Elk & Elk, and Bevan and Associates, as well as the participating taxi companies, Rides 4 Less Taxi and City Yellow Cab, for their support in this effort.”

Summit County residents who need a ride home because they’ve had too much to drink can call 330.475.7888. The program runs from 6pm on Wednesday November 21, 2018 through 6am Sunday November 25, 2018.
