AAA will provide free rides home for drivers with disabilities during Thanksgiving

DENVER (KDVR) – Tow to Go, a program created by AAA to keep impaired motorists on the road, kicks off in the Denver metro area Wednesday night.

Once the call is received, a tow truck and Lyft driver will be dispatched to pick up a disabled driver. The driver and vehicle will be taken to a safe place within a 10-mile radius.

How to get a free, safe ride from AAA over the Thanksgiving holiday:

  • Call (855) 2-TOW-2-GO to get home safely.
  • Tow to Go is available from 6 p.m. Wednesday to 6 a.m. Monday in the Denver metro area.
  • Free and available to both AAA members and non-members.
  • AAA will provide a confidential local ride for one person, via Lyft, and their vehicle within a 10-mile radius. AAA is unable to accommodate emergency ambulance riders at this time.
  • This service is limited to one (1) passenger per Lyft. A mask or face covering in accordance with established COVID-19 safety procedures is required. Additional passengers need to make other arrangements.
  • Appointments cannot be scheduled in advance, as the program is designed as a safety net for those who do not plan ahead. Always choose a designated driver before celebrating.
  • In some situations, AAA may need to make other arrangements to bring a person with a disability home safely.
  • Tow to Go may not be available during inclement weather.

“AAA is proud to bring this life-saving program to Colorado this Thanksgiving,” said Skyler McKinley, AAA’s regional director of public affairs. “Millions of Americans will be behind the wheel this weekend and we want to make sure they can get home safely, without driving, as a last resort.”
