ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

One Albany group is helping people ring in a safe New Year.

Stewbos, a company that owns the Merry Acres Inn and several restaurants around Albany is offering a free ride home for some patrons.

Hotel guests and City Club Members can get free rides in either of the company's vans or a new Mercedes Sprinter if they've had a little too much to drink.

"Well, if we see that a patron is having a good time, and might require a ride home, we usually ask them or try to either get them a cab or shuttle service. We call them and make sure everybody's taken care of. We really like to promote safety at all of our locations," said Event and Marketing Director Erin Whatley.

Whatley says patrons can sign up for their city club program to get rides and other benefits for a monthly fee.

For more information, call (229) 432-6092 or visit www.stewbos.com
