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:
