Drinking in Denver: A Digital Guide to Getting Home Safe

BLOG DUI Are blood breath and urine tests reliable PHOTOOur last blog post mentioned Denver’s elite status among the nation’s top cities using technology to get people out of their cars and onto alternative transit methods. Making sure residents and visitors have safe and accessible transportation is a major priority in maintaining public safety, and Denver is uniquely equipped to provide people with safe options to get home after a night out.

Here is a list of the high-tech tools available to Denver residents:

  • Ride-sharing services like Uber and Lyft take the uncertainty out of hailing a cab. On a night out, there is almost always a driver nearby. Services such as these have been proven to reduce drunk driving in a city.
  • If you do desire a more traditional cab ride, apps like Curb and local taxi company apps can help you quickly connect with a driver when you need one.
  • There are smartphone resources that connect with the Regional Transportation District’s (RTD) transit system. They can help you find rail line schedules and bus stops to get you where you need to go.
  • Walk Score is an app available for iOS and Android phones and allows you to calculate the walkability of any location in Denver.
  • The Transit App for iOS can show you a quick summary of all nearby public transit departure times.
  • MyStop, available from RTD’s mobile website, allows you to input the unique five-digit code found on each of the 10,250 stops in the RTD system to access route and schedule information from your mobile device.
  • If you have a designated driver, services like Car2Go and Zipcar can get you downtown and back on the cheap.

With this many options, Denver residents can enjoy the nightlife in a safe and legal manner. The following safety steps can also help ensure a smooth night:

  • Plan your night ahead of time with the Apps suggested above.
  • If public transportation or a cab isn’t an option, designate a non-drinking driver, or multiple drivers if you are a part of a large group.
  • If you are hosting a party, make sure you offer alcohol-free drink options for drivers.
