These are heartening words to be coming from a distiller at any time, but the holiday season is the worst possible time for liquor-related misfortunes.  Consequently, Longview Transit is teaming up with R&K Distributors – your local Budweiser Distributor – to insure that everyone, drinkers included have a safe and happy new year.
This combined effort will be providing free rides to anyone in Longview City limits on New Year’s Eve.
Also, if someone suspects that he or she has had one too many and should not drive or simply does not want to drive that evening, all he or she has to do is call Longview Transit at 903-753-2287 extension 10.  Transportation service will be available to or from any Longview destination.  This service is offered to the general public, including individuals that have had a couple of drinks.
The bus service will begin around 8:00 p.m. on New Year’s Eve and continue until approximately 3:00 a.m.  “Longview is proud to be able to offer this unique service for residents celebrating the New Year,” said Rob Stephens, Longview Transit general manager.  “We want to be able to provide a safe and easy alternative to getting behind the wheels.”
It is only the financial contribution of R&K Distributors that makes this safe ride alternative possible.  Longview Transit is proud to partner with the distributor in this endeavor to keep the City of Longview and its citizens safe on New Year’s Eve.
