How are you getting home for New Year's?

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash.—Two years ago Kennewick Police stopped offering free rides on holidays.  Now with New Year's only hours away, how are you getting home?

Some of your options are Tri-City Taxi, which is $3.00 until 12:30am.  Rad Cab costs $4.50 per taxi and $1.95 per mile, or Amigo Taxi, their prices vary.

Don't expect your cab to arrive on time.  Taxi drivers say New Year's Eve is one of their busiest nights.  They average about twice as many rides. 

Tri-City Taxi Manager, Ron Davis, says they have about 12 extra vehicles on the road to cover about 1,000 calls between 10:00pm and 3:00am.

 Most important, Davis says plan ahead.  Either designate a driver or call a taxi.
