By - posted 12/30/2014 No Comment

Revelers in San Francisco and East Bay will be offered a potentially life saving treat this New Year’s Eve, December 31, 2014 – a free cab ride home.

Safe and Sober Free Cab Ride Home Program
New Year’s Eve 2015
Berg Injury Lawyers offer free cab rides home only in SF and Sacramento, from 10 pm, Wednesday, December 31, through 4 am, Thursday, January 1, 2015.

  • San Francisco (within city limits), call Luxor Cab at (415) 282-4141. Tell them “Berg Injury Lawyers is picking up the tab” ($35 Limit)
  • In Sacramento, call Yellow Cab Company of Sacramento at (916) 444-2222. Tell them “Berg Injury Lawyers is picking up the tab” ($35 Limit)

Other Ways to Get Home: Unfortunately the Safe and Sober Free Cab program is not valid in the East Bay. You can still try AAA’s Tipsy Tow, the Downtown Oakland Free B Bus and check out Funcheap’s NYE public transport guide. Stay safe and please don’t drink and drive.

Free Cab Tips:
– Only valid for called cabs, not if you hail one in the street
– Be patient when calling – it may be tough to get through over the phone
Cabs will take you home from a bar, restaurant or club (not from house parties and not to other bars)
– Don’t forget to tell driver “Berg Injury Lawyers is picking up the tab
– The first $35 of the fare will be covered, you must cover the rest.
– Free cab rides offered 10 pm on New Year’s Eve through 3 am.
Don’t forget to tip like a rockstar

Cab rides are made available to area residents who otherwise might attempt to drive home after drinking. Rides are provided from bars & restaurants (not from house parties) to an individual’s residence and not to other drinking locations.

$10 Flat Rate Cab Rides?
It ain’t “free” but if you can’t get through on the phones to Luxor, you can try using the Flywheel app to order a cab from your phone. Get $10 flat rate rides all night (until 3am) as long as your meter doesn’t go over $50. Learn More.
