City Cab Doubles Workforce for New Year's Eve

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Drunk driving claims the lives of 10,000 people every year, but according to City Cab owner Barry Willson, the majority of people are smart and plan ahead on busy days like New Year's.

"We get a call every, I think it's every two seconds from 10 o'clock at night until 4 in the morning. So, if you can crunch those numbers, it's a lot of calls," said Willson.

Willson said extra drivers and dispatchers will be working to ensure a safe ride home for everyone.

"Please be careful out there. It's amateur night as they say. Use a taxi. Use a designated driver. There's a lot of programs out there, a lot of people dealing with this. Just think smart, act safe," said Willson.

Willson said with twice as many cab drivers, the average wait time to get a ride will be 20 minutes.

"Within a half an hour of getting ready to leave your establishment, I would even say an hour, just to make sure, because when you're partying time flies. About an hour ahead of time call City Cab, and a cab will come to you," Willson said.

Willson said City Cab can accommodate any party size. He says it doesn't matter where you are, it's City Cab's goal to get you where you need to be. Safe and sound.
