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).




AAA provides free cab rides home during the holidays in select cities (including Albany) between the hours of 12 p.m. and midnight.

If you need a safe ride home, you may also call: 1-800-AAA-HELP.

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!
