Mayor Graham Richard today announced the Holiday Cab program will begin Thursday, December 21.

In its 19th year, the Holiday Cab program offers free cab rides to people who may be impaired. Cab rides are provided within a 10-mile radius of downtown Fort Wayne. The program runs December 21-January 1. Cabs are available from 8 p.m.-3 a.m. to take passengers to their homes. Potential riders cannot reserve rides or be taken from one event to another. Anyone needing a free cab ride should call 460-4654.

Holiday cab provides a tremendous service to our community as we work to be a safe city,” said Mayor Richard. “We also thank our local law enforcement agencies for their commitment to keeping our roads as safe as possible. We want everyone to enjoy the holiday season with family and friends.”
