Local taxi company offers free rides after midnight

MEDFORD, Ore. — A local taxi company wants to make sure you enjoy New Year’s celebrations tonight and get home safe.

5-Star Taxi has been located in Medford over the past decade.

Tonight, they’re giving back to the community by giving free rides.

5-Star Taxi will begin offering free rides in the New Year, after the clock strikes midnight until 6:00 a.m.

They say that they will have 7 taxis out tonight and they have two cars that can take up to 6 passengers if needed.

“Get everybody, keep everybody safe tonight and whether it’s using us or calling a friend, having a designated driver, whatever it takes, just anybody who’s drinking don’t get behind the wheel of a car,” said 5-Star Taxi driver, Russell Nelson.

If you’re looking for other ride options, local ride share programs such as Lyft and Uber have discounts for first time riders.
