Skylark Taxi is Preparing for New Year's Eve

Taxi companies in Wichita Falls are prepared for a busy night on New Year's Eve.

Skylark Taxi is expecting anywhere from 500 to 700 calls on that night alone.

All available taxis will be out and running all night long.  A free service is offered from midnight on New Year's Eve until 2:00 in the morning on New Year's Day for people who may have had too much to drink. The free service will only take you from the bar to your home, not to another bar or party.

Skylark Taxi's president, Kevin Callahan told Newschannel 6 that you shouldn't wait until the last minute to call for a cab.

“We encourage people to pre-book cabs that night.  If you call, there may be a long waiting list, so we encourage people to book their cabs in advance, “said Callahan.

Callahan's advice for New Year's Eve festivities, don't drink and drive.
