Operation Safe Ride offered on Outer Cape, and in Yarmouth for New Years Eve

OUTER CAPE – Now in its 6th year, OPERATION SAFERIDE provides free and sober rides home on New Year’s Eve.

Operation Safe Ride provides citizens and visitors a free and sober ride home starting at 10pm on Sunday, December 31st until 4am on Monday, January 1st 2018. This outreach service is designed specifically to limit impaired drivers on our roadways and to work in partnership with public safety to keep our communities safe.

Anyone who needs a safe and sober ride home on New Year’s Eve from a licensed liquor establishment to a residence in the Towns of Provincetown/Truro/Wellfleet/Eastham/Orleans can simply call one of our designated community-partnership taxi companies for a free and sober ride home.

The service runs from 10pm-2am and will be call based; after 2am until 4am as long as the caller makes a reservation in advance of 2am their ride home would still be free. This program sponsored by Provincetown, Truro, Wellfleet, Eastham, and Orleans police associations.


For all destinations please call Cape Cab at 508-TAXICAB

YARMOUTH – Operation Safe Ride Home starts at 6:00 PM Sunday, December 31st and ends at 3:00 AM on Monday, January 1, 2018. 

Anyone who needs a free and safe ride home from a Yarmouth licensed liquor establishment should call Town Taxi directly at 508.775.5555.

YPD encourages all Yarmouth and other Cape Cod drivers to look out for each other. Don’t let others drive drunk, and don’t tolerate those who do, or ride with them. Drinking and driving injures or kills a driver every day. This is why no one should drive impaired or ride with anyone who is.

If you see an impaired driver call 911 and help police keep our citizens safe.

Police consider impaired driving a very serious crime and are extremely proactive in OUI Enforcement.  Additional Police Officers will be on patrol all night.

Do not drink and drive and if you need a ride home take advantage of this highly successful program which will provide people with a free ride home during this New Year’s Eve.

The men and women of the Yarmouth Police Department, our Yarmouth Business Community, and the Citizens of Yarmouth are dedicated to making Yarmouth one of the Safest Communities in the Region. 

Be smart and be safe and best wishes to all in 2018!
