Designated Drivers beefs up fleet for Thanksgiving

Designated Drivers of Buffalo is calling in extra drivers to answer additional calls from Thanksgiving Eve partygoers who have had too much to drink and need to get themselves and their vehicles home safely and without being arrested.

The service, which will be available from 8 p.m. to 4 a.m., sends two drivers to a caller’s location, one to drive the customer home in his or her own vehicle and the other to follow behind.

To request service, call 713-7703. Fee is $25 plus $2.50 per mile for members of the service; $35 plus $3.50 per mile for non-members. For information, visit
