  • Time for the annual question: Has anyone ever used this successfully? Like, without being told that you’re facing a two-hour wait?

    • I think the consensus is no, chances are this does not work.

      And why should it? If I was a taxi driver, I would never pick up one of these free rides. Chances are they are blackout drunk, would puke in my car, and doubtfully have any money to tip me – even after the free ride*!

      * Disclaimer: Not a fan of DC’s taxi drivers, just putting myself in their shoes.

  • There should be an asterisk on this announcement: *applicable ONLY if you can get the cab to pick you up

  • they need to move this to Sat 27th

  • I’ve tried the sober ride free taxi thing three times. Never had any success getting a cab.

  • I don’t know why PoP publishes this every year when we’ve clearly established that it’s a PR scam from the various “sponsors”
