Uber is the modern day taxi. It connects riders to drivers through the “Uber” app (Go here to download Uber https://get.uber.com/). Uber is a network of drivers in their personal vehicles connects with people needing a ride. Founded in 2009, it now exists in hundreds of cities today. It’s like a taxi on call who might just be a vetted neighbor with some free time on their hands. Uber prices can fluctuate, so if the going rate is too high, wait 10 minutes and try again.
2) Tow to Go
Georgia has a particular program that is to be used as a last resort on New Year’s Eve and holidays. It’s called Tow to GO, call (855) 2-TOW-2-GO to get yourself and your car towed home. It’s free.
