Free or discounted Halloween cab rides offered in Sacramento

Yellow Cab of Sacramento is partnering with Berg Injury Lawyers to offer free or discounted cab rides home on Halloween night for people in downtown and midtown Sacramento.

The service is being pitched as a safety initiative, given the presence of trick-or-treating children on the streets amid adults who may have had too much to drink. The Halloween cab rides are available from 10 p.m. Saturday through 4 a.m. Sunday.

Officials said they will pick up people at midtown and downtown Sacramento bars, restaurants, hotels or clubs. Berg said it will pay the first $35 of any Yellow Cab of Sacramento ride home – no bar hopping allowed. Passengers are responsible for any balance of the fare.

To get more information or request a cab, call 916-444-2222. The “Curb App” also can be used to request a cab. It can be downloaded at

Officials said cab rides cannot be guaranteed for everyone who calls, depending on the volume of requests.
