Yarmouth New Year’s Eve Free Ride Program Running for Fifth Year

Yarmouth PoliceYARMOUTH – For a fifth year, Operation Safe Ride Home will offer New Year’s revelers in Yarmouth a free, safe ride home.

The program is a collaboration between the Yarmouth Police Department, Town Taxi and other local businesses.

“It’s a great program because no one should be driving impaired but also there’s a clear message that if you do drive impaired, you’re going to get arrested,” Yarmouth Police Deputy Chief Steven Xiarhos said.

The program is funded through donations by residents and local businesses and will run from 6 p.m. Thursday to 3 a.m. Friday.

Operation Safe Ride Home is a part of a multi-faceted proactive OUI enforcement plan, and is just another step in ensuring public safety, according to Deputy Chief Xiarhos.

“We do everything we can here to enforce the law, but also offer this great partnership with our business community where anyone can take advantage of this program at no cost and keep everyone safe,” Deputy Chief Xiarhos said.

Anyone needing to take advantage of the no-cost service on New Year’s Eve can call 508-775-5555 from any Yarmouth licensed liquor establishment.
