V.I. Taxicab Commission Offers Complimentary Shuttle Services Post-J’Ouvert to Combat Drunk Driving



In a proactive move to enhance safety during the festive J’Ouvert 2024, the V.I. Taxicab Commission, in collaboration with the V.I. Police Department, is launching a “Safe Ride Shuttles” service. This service, unveiled on Sunday, is designed to deter drinking and driving by offering free rides to attendees of the annual celebration.

Starting on Thursday, May 2, 2024, just after the J’Ouvert festivities conclude, party-goers will have access to shuttle services in front of the Alexander Farrelly Justice Complex. The shuttles will head east, making multiple stops along the established Safari Bus route. Notable stops include Raphune Hill, Fort Mylner, Tutu Park Mall, Smith Bay, Red Hook, Nazareth, Frydenhoj, Nadir, Bovoni, Bolongo, Frenchman’s Bay, and Haven Sight.

This convenient, voucher-free initiative is part of a broader effort to ensure the well-being of community members during one of the liveliest times of the year. By emphasizing the message, “the life you save may be your own,” the campaign highlights its critical goal: to minimize drunk driving incidents and ensure everyone returns home safely.
