P.Diddy wants you to party hard this 31st, and to prove it, he’s going to pay for you to get home safely. He’s most concerned about New Yorker’s getting home safe, so he’s making his effort in the Big Apple. This New Year’s Eve, Diddy, along with the city Taxi & Limousine Commission is handing out thousands of free rides home. No, Diddy isn’t going to peddling you around in a pedicab, though that might be a fun end to a raucous evening, and no, there aren’t going to be Diddy impersonators driving cabs around the city, though that might be fun as well. Instead you can pick up a voucher for a $15 cab ride, or a single ride metrocard.
Diddy hopes that NYC can set an example for the rest of the country. “New York is the world’s most iconic New Year’s Eve city, so let’s lead by example and show everyone that a sophisticated holiday celebration doesn’t just end when the ball drops, but when everyone gets home safely,” Combs said. If you want in on the free cab/free metrocard deal, you can pick them up from Times Square or Chelsea starting at 11pm and going until 3am or until supplies run out. Just track down a Ciroc street team member and demand your free ride.
