If you and your friends and family are planning on having a festive New Year’s Eve in and around the Ludington area, there is no need to worry about transportation home if the celebration gets a little too festive. Since 2003, the New Year’s Eve Drive Safe Drive Sober effort has offered nearly 9,000 rides and towed almost 150 cars, all for free and this year it is back again.
Mason County law enforcement joined with Ludington Mass Transportation, local businesses and national organizations to help people get home safe after a night out.
This year there are again many local sponsors of the event that include local business and organizations helping to fund the service.
This year the effort will take passengers and cars to the City of Ludington north to the intersection of Lakeshore Drive and M-116 in Hamlin Township and Pere Marquette Township, east to Scottville, from Hansen Road south to Conrad Road.
If you would like to take advantage of this free service please call, L.M.T.A. at 231-845-6218 between the hours of 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. and then from 8 p.m. until 3:30 a.m. to schedule your ride. The L.M.T.A. buses will begin picking up riders at 9 p.m. on Thursday, December 31 and continue throughout the evening until 4 a.m. Friday, January 1, 2016.
WMOM is a proud participating sponsor of the New Year’s Eve Drive Safe Drive Sober effort.
