Free Rides for 2020 New Year’s Eve in San Diego

December 31, 2019


New Year’s Eve is about here, which means lots of celebrations tomorrow night, and of course for many some alcohol…and in some cases probably too many adult beverages. Driving is not a safe thing to be doing when you have been drinking!!


If you are going out to celebrate New Year’s Eve be sure to have a designated (non-drinking) driver, or take an Uber or Lyft (or other car service) so there are no problems with drinking and driving. You can bet, as they always do, that police will be out looking for DUIs and will perhaps have checkpoints set up around the county.


Carlsbad Village Train StationOther options are the FREE rides, beginning at 6 pm, on the San Diego Metropolitan Transit System (MTS) trolleys and most busses.


Or use the free rides on the North County Transit District (NCTD) which includes the Coaster, the Breeze (busses) and the Sprinter with additional late service being offered on the Sprinter.


The schedule for New Year’s Eve is the normal weekday schedule.


What a great opportunity to get out for New Year’s Eve, have fun, and be safe without needing to drive your car when drinking.


MTS is also pairing up with Lyft – a ride on Lyft beginning or ending at a transit center will get you a 20% discount!


Happy Safe New Year’s Eve 2020!

Good morning Jeff. In Chicago, the CTA is free from 10pm to 4pm so those who party don't have to drive. Happy new year. Enjoy your day!

Hi Jeff... that's one thing that has always worried me about being out on New Year's Eve... drivers who are under the influence. Free rides are a wonderful service to the community and I hope many will take advantage of them.

Posted by Nina Hollander, Your Charlotte/Ballantyne/Waxhaw/Fort Mill Realtor (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage ) about 2 months ago

Good morning Jeff. The idea of free rides is wonderful. I stopped by though to wish you a Happy Healthy and Productive New Year. It was a pleasure to meet you last November and I hope to meet you again one day. Cheers.

That is a very good thing to offer and hopefully anyone that drinks too much will take advantage of it rather than trying to drive themselves home.

Jeff I hope anyone drinking tonight makes good choices, so they can have a New Year, and not one which begins with tragedy.

Hi Laura Cerrano 

Happy New Year 2020. Hope you had a fun evening.

We stayed home, which suited us fine since we are both sick. But we watched the ball drop in Times Square.

Happy New Year 2020, Endre Barath, Jr. 

I thought it was a terrific idea. I know more and more people who are using Uber and Lyft instead of driving if they are going to be drinking. Great idea...and safe!

Hi Wayne Martin 

Good to hear! I expect more and more cities are doing this!

Happy New Year 2020!
