Waco Transit is offering free rides to and from home this New Year's Eve, all to make sure those who drink don't get behind the wheel.

One Wacoan is already thinking ahead of the night to come.

"I've already called in and got it set up, so my car is going to sit at home all day." Gary Moore said. 

This is Moore's first year riding with Waco Transit, after 14 years of free rides on New Year's Eve it's a successful night of getting people home safely. 

"We have had up to 500 people use the free ride system, our goal is to provide safe reliable transportation. Get everyone home safely." Charles Parham, Waco Transit Director of operations said. 

You can call Waco Transit when you need the ride but they say it's best to call in advance and book your Safe Ride. 

To book or request your Safe Ride Home call Waco Transit at 254-750-1620. 

Waco Transit has also partnered with Tow King to offer free vehicle tows home, between the hours of 6 p.m.and 3 a.m. You can call Tow King for a pick up at 254-666-5484 or call Waco Transit and they can help arrange the tow as well.
