Safe Rides For San Diego

This is my post from 2010, but most of the information is the same this year. Plan accordingly. 


Hopefully you have big New Year's Eve plans, and I would urge you to plan ahead and be safe.

Cabs are gonna be busy but below are some options for getting to and from your destination safely.
Taxi Rob- Rob has a private taxi service and has a vehicle that can hold up to seven passengers. Call him directly at (619) 318-8935 and he'll accurately tell you how long of a wait you have.

GoFastCab- If you want to get direct to a cab without waiting on a phone with dispatch, send a text to 777222 with the address and zip code of your location. You'll receive a confirmation text and the driver will call you when they're about 2 minutes away. Unfortunately, they don't give you time estimates, but I haven't ever experienced any excessive waits.

Tipsy Tow- AAA of Southern California is once again offering their Tipsy Tow service. They will tow your car and the driver only up to seven miles. Call 1-800-400-4AAA (4222) for a free tow...just remember to tip the driver. The service is available from 6pm today until 6am on New Year's Day.

MTS & Trolley- MTS & Trolley service are extended for the holiday weekend. You can see full schedules here:
On New Year's Eve, MTS will operate extended service on all three Trolley lines:

Blue Line: The last southbound Blue Line will depart Old Town at 12:45 a.m.
Green Line: The last eastbound Green Line will depart Old Town at 12:30 a.m.
Orange Line: The last eastbound Orange Line will depart from the bayside platform at 12th and Imperial at 12:45 a.m. This train will circle downtown and depart from 12th & Imperial at about 1:04 a.m. for El Cajon.
Obviously, there are limos and cabs and plenty of other options, so use them and kick off the New Year safely. Don't wait to make a plan. Do it now and enjoy the night worry free.
