Diddy: Free Taxi Rides on New Year's Eve!

PARTY RESPONSIBLY

Diddy is offering free cab fare to New Yorkers this New Year’s Eve party goers.

The 39-year-old music mogul and Ciroc premium vodka have teamed up with City Taxi & Limousine Commission and E! Entertainment to distribute thousands of debit cards, valued up to $15.

“New York is the world’s most iconic New Year’s Eve City,” Diddy says. “So let’s lead by example and show everyone that a sophisticated holiday celebration doesn’t just end when the ball drops, but when everyone gets home safely.”

Street teams will distribute the debit cards in the Times Square area and Chelsea’s nightclub areas between 11PM on New Year’s Eve and 3AM on New Year’s Day.

    Nice job Puffy. I still think you are a publicity seeker though…

  • Rita

    Why the negative comment?
    So it’s for publicity, but he’s being generous and promoting a good cause. Don’t drink and drive, folks!

    This has been already done here in Brazil, by Johnnie Walker.

    Cool but not original.

  • tadow

    will be seeing this guy soon to be in politics :)

  • lolita

    $15? in New York traffic? lol That will only get people a few blocks.

  • Adrianna

    It would make more sense to do this in L.A. I doubt alot of people will be driving in New York City traffic on New Years Eve except cabs. It seems like people wouldn’t have any choice but to take a cab with or without these debit cards.

  • Tania

    Agreed with Adriana – this idea would be better marketed in a city such as LA where the inhabitants do not rely heavily on public transportation and cabs. In LA people area ALWAYS in their cars – most of my friends here in NYC don’t even own a car. Hopefully I can score myself some free cab fare :-)

  • Paulina

    AWESOMEEEEEEEE and inspiring .
    I LOVE NYC AND DIDDY !

  • laura

    thats a great idea :)
    even if people dont drive, its a lot safer for people to take a free cab than to be walking home drunk and vulnerable right

  • wtf

    He’s still a dumbass, but this is awesome.

  • Debbie

    isnt it King Diddy now??? this guy is so full of himself.

  • hATing

    Firstly, this guy is such a load of crap~! Anheuser-Busch is partaking in this as well: http://www.lohud.com/article/20081229/NEWS03/812290383
    Diddy needs to generate generosity by starting at home, his family is all broken up and he’s too busy partying the night away. If he really was generous he should donate $$ to families in need. This guy just needs to disappear.

  • yeah yeah

    Firstly, there will be no cabs available and even those that will be will charge at least 10X more!!! the gypsy cabs charge 15$ to go down 4 blocks! they should just do this in LA makes more sense i agree with y’all.

    Its such as you learn my mind! You appear to understand so much about this, like you wrote the e book in it or something. I think that you simply can do with a few p.c. to force the message house a bit, however other than that, this is magnificent blog. A great read. I will definitely be back.
