Orange County Executive Steven M. Neuhaus joined District Attorney David Hoovler, Undersheriffs Kenneth T. Jones and Anthony Weed, and Dana Distributors on Fri., Dec. 30 to show support for Dana Distributors’ Alert Cab initiative. Dana Distributors is offering cab rides free of charge to residents in Rockland, Orange, and Sullivan counties as part of the Alert Cab program.
Rides are available from 4 p.m. on Sat., Dec. 31 to 2 a.m. on New Year’s Day. Destinations must be within a 10-mile radius of pickup, and one must have driven his/her car to the location at which pick up is requested. Participating bars and restaurants will have signs to let patrons know the program is available. The program aims to improve road safety and prevent drunk driving over the New Year’s holiday.
The Alert Cab service is paid for by Dana Distributors and provided by 20 cab companies, including nine in Orange County. For more information about the Alert Cab program, contact Tom Kennedy at Dana Distributors at 615-3236.
