Hudson Valley Safe Ride Guide

Over the weekend, the New York State Police pulled over 20 impaired drivers from the roads. We know – things can be stressful and the parties can be fun but that is no reason to take that risk on the road.

 

Hail a ride in the Hudson Valley

Ride-sharing services, Uber and Lyft, were first introduced to the Hudson Valley-area this year after legislation passed in June but there is limited service to the outer NYC-area (only two vehicles were available via Uber throughout the entire Hudson Valley on our search).

Thank you for being a friend

If you're planning a night on the town, be sure to designate one person to take the wheel at the end of the night. Or have the phone number of a loyal – and sober – buddy on speed dial to ensure more fun nights in the future.

Have fun and be safe!
