WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. – New Year’s Eve revelers celebrating in downtown White Plains will be able to get a free ride home thanks to Heineken's "New Year. Safe Ride" program.

The White Plains-based company has sponsored the safe ride program for the past nine years to promote responsible consumption among those 21 and older traveling anywhere in White Plains or Westchester County. A dedicated fleet will be on the corner of East Post Road and Mamaroneck Avenue between 11 p.m. and 3 a.m.

"Driving while intoxicated is a serious offense that can have tragic consequences, including the loss of lives," said District Attorney Janet DiFiore. "Acting responsibly at holiday time and year-round should be every driver's first consideration.”

The White Plains New Year’s Eve Spectacular will again feature a ball drop at midnight on Main and Court streets accompanied by confetti and a four-minute fireworks display. There will be a DJ and music from 10 p.m. to around 12:30 a.m..

I am thinking to go to Madrid next holiday. I heard and saw on TV a lot of things about this region and my love for sports makes me want to see it. It won't cost me a fortune to visit it, after all I will search online the best offer for this destination.


This could've been a great service but it was the most poorly-run system I've ever seen.

Whoever employed the two men working the taxi stand (White Plains, Heineken, or the cab company?) needs to realize that a lot of people will never drink a beverage from Heineken USA again.

Long story short they used some extremely vulgar language and made it one of the most embarrassing nights of our lives.
