Free Ride Back Program Helps Keep Halloween Drivers And Passengers From Becoming Ghosts

Arizonans may dress up as superheroes in the coming week, but Discount Cab reminds drivers they're not invulnerable to DUIs and accidents

Discount Cab, Arizona's own "green limousine" will drive you home from a restaurant or bar, and as a favor to you and the rest of the land of the living, they'll even take you back to your car the following morning for free.

Arizona has some of the toughest DUI laws in the country, and defending a charge can cost thousands of dollars. The average DUI in the U.S. costs around $10,000 according to Discount Cab is giving back, cutting the cab fare in half by allowing customers to take advantage of the "free ride back" program, which keeps you from the risk of ruining your life.

"It makes sense," says Craig Hughes, CEO of Total Transit, parent company of Discount Cab. "We are in a position to provide Arizonans with a truly safe, responsible alternative means of transportation during busy holiday weekends. Halloween is no exception."

This philanthropic service is available year-round, and has been offered by Discount Cab for more than a decade. The goal of this program is to assist in increasing the safety of Arizona highways.
To participate in the program, bar and restaurant patrons can call 602-200-2000 in Phoenix, or 520-200-2000 in Tucson.

Discount Cab wants to remind those wishing to get a free ride back of these policies:

• Passenger must ask for this service when ordering the Discount Cab
• Maximum use of the free ride back program is two times per month
• Passenger must be picked up from - and returned to - a bar or restaurant
• Not available with the Discount Cab text service
