Many communities are offering dial-a-ride ride service programs (RSP) to drive alcohol-impaired drivers, their passengers and their vehicles home. This a report of a study which identified and described such programs, assessed their strengths and weaknesses, and determined whether the programs reduce the occurrence of drinking and driving. The key findings and conclusions of the study are presented. More than 300 programs were identified in 44 states, and many different types of organizations were found to operate RSPs. About two thirds of the programs, which varied considerably in complexity, employed taxicabs. Published reports describing such programs are noted.
