Wellington, FL. January 29, 2015 – From January through April, Wellington residents will have the opportunity to utilize a free safe ride service starting Sunday, January 31st.

With months in the making, the Wellington Safe Ride Service will be operating on Sunday nights from 10:30 pm until 3:30 am. The services provided ensure all passengers have a fun and responsible night. Three buses chaperoned by volunteers will be available to shuttle individuals from their homes to the Grille, to Players Club, and then from Players Club home.

Conceptualized by Wellington resident Romain Marteau, this program will be available to not just those within the Equestrian community but to all Wellington residents.

“On Sunday nights plan for a safe ride home with one of our insured and licensed drivers,” said Romain Marteau. “We are working very hard to make this program a viable option for those who feel they cannot drive safely or are just tired after a long day. It is an important factor helping to protect the community and create a secure environment.”

Free Ride Sundays is a nonprofit program run by volunteers and is encouraging Wellington residents to sponsor the remaining weeks.

“We want this to be a service that Wellington residents use. It will benefit the entire community as a whole,” states Marteau. “Please consider donating so that we can make certain that Free Ride Sundays continue not only throughout circuit this year but also for years to come. We welcome any monetary donations. If you cannot/do not want to donate money please consider volunteering to be a chaperone one Sunday evening.
