Free Cab Rides in Bethesda for Revelers

December 12, 2013

Starting Friday night, you’ll be able to get a free taxi ride up to $30 in Bethesda. The Washington Regional Alcohol Program (WRAP) is offering its 2013 Holiday SoberRide program from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. nightly from Friday to New Year’s Eve. Participants must be 21 or older and can call 800-200-8294 (TAXI) for a ride. Callers must pay for anything over the subsidized $30 fare. WRAP’s SoberRide, also used for July 4, St. Patrick’s Day and Halloween, has provided almost 58,000 taxi rides since it started in 1993. You can’t reserve a pick-up in advance. (BN)
