4 ways to score a safe ride home this New Year's

HOUSTON – Making a plan now can be the difference between life and death for you and others on the road this holiday weekend. 

Law enforcement agencies are urging everyone to use ride-sharing services. 

For New Year’s Eve night, there are several options to get a ride home without driving yourself.

Tipsy Tow
This AAA Texas service offers a free tow home, up to 10 miles, from 6 p.m. Monday until 6 a.m. on New Year’s Day. The number to call is: 1-800-AAA-HELP. You don't have to be a AAA member.

AAA is also teaming up with Lyft for its Plan Ahead, Ride Safe initiative, which will give you a $5 discount off Lyft rides across the state from 8 a.m. on Monday until 4 a.m. on New 
Year's Day. You can claim the discount by using promo code NYEPLAN18 in the Lyft app.

Free rides on metro buses, metro-rail and metro-lift will begin at 6 p.m. New Year’s Eve and go until 6 a.m. New Year’s Day.

Go to the Promotions section of your app to see ways you may be able to make extra money.
