Plan Ahead Colorado

Save lives and avoid a DUI by planning ahead with a sober designated driver

This holiday season, the Colorado Department of Transportation and Colorado State Patrol are partnering with RTD and MillerCoors to encourage people to make responsible decisions if celebrating by drinking alcohol. The program returns to Denver on December 31 to offer free rides on all RTD bus, mall and light rail routes throughout the Denver area.

Since the program began in 2008, the RTD and Coors Light New Year's Eve partnership has provided one million free rides. For detailed route and schedule information, call 1-800-FREE-RIDES (1-800-373-3743), text "RIDE" to 90464 or visit

Each year in Colorado, nearly 200 people are killed in alcohol-related crashes and 25,000 drivers are arrested for DUI.  Don’t be a statistic.  Use this website to plan ahead for your holiday party by designating a sober driver, finding a place to park your car overnight, and taking public transportation or a cab.
