— We know that St. Patrick’s day is full of drinking shenanigans for most people. But it's no excuse to drive drunk.
If you happen to go too hard, here are some options to get you home safely.
Please note: we recommend planning in advance. Arrangements with a designated driver should be decided upon ahead of time, and it's always good to know what cab service you plan to use and to call to confirm they can service your location and wait times.
1.) The Uber app can figure out where you are and will hook you up with the nearest Uber driver in Dayton. Just plug in where you want to go and the Uber app will then give you an estimate of the fare for the ride. Just be careful: Uber is known to experience price surges during high-demand periods. A two-mile ride that would normally cost $4-10 dollars in a normal cab can easily spike to several times that much.
2.) Cab Guys are a locally-owned transportation service, serving the southern Dayton suburbs. You can give them a call at 937-505-0222. Their general fee for the first three miles is $10; after that they charge an additional $2 a mile. More info: Website
3.) Anton’s Transportation serves 13 counties in the Miami Valley, just in case you wander outside of Dayton. You can give them a call at 937-252-4756. Anton’s charges a general fee of $9 for the first three miles and an additional $2 per mile after. More info:
4.) Walt’s Taxi Cab Service is another local cab service in Dayton. Call them at 937-825-3861. Walt’s charges $2 per mile. Minimum charges depend on how far away from Dayton you are.
5.) Lyft app. Like Uber, Lyft is an app service that matches you with a friendly local driver at the tap of a button.
