Taxi rides free in Ottumwa for New Year's
OTTUMWA, Iowa —
Ottumwa chauffeurs are making it easy to drink responsibly this New Year’s weekend.
Ottumwa Cab is at least one business in town, offering a free ride home from the bar starting at midnight Saturday until 6 a.m. New Year’s Day.
Each year in Ottumwa, Budweiser picks up the cab fare to prevent people from drinking and driving.
"We make sure that people get from bar to home safely with their families, because you know, we don't want anybody to ever get that call that their loved one died from drinking and driving,” said Ottumwa Cab Manager Haley Carwell.
The free service only applies to rides within city limits. Rides to the bar will cost extra.
