What a great idea!

Diddy is generously providing free transportation for New Year's Eve party-goers in both New York and Las Vegas!

The rapper will have thousands of subway passes and taxi vouchers distributed in NYC and Vegas as part of the Safe Rides program he launched last year.

Cards will be given to adults between 8pm and 11pm on New Year's Eve with up to $15 in cab fare and a one-way subway or bus fare valued at $2.25.

Diddy explains:

"New York stands as the world's icon for a New Year's Eve celebration and Las Vegas is the biggest party destination in the country. By bringing this program to both of these great cities we will continue to show the rest of the country that a sophisticated holiday celebration doesn't end when the ball drops, but when everyone gets home safely."

Smart thinking!

    Very cool–

    I think it's awesome that he's providing a responsible way for people to get home that night but I am surprised that this is a private initiative instead of a public one. Although the city I live in is nothing in size compared to New York, it does provide free transportation on Subways and Buses for New Years Eve and I would hope cities the scale of New York or Vegas would consider doing something similar.

    I think this is great. I live in Boston though and because our "T" (subway system) is free on New Years Eve I just assumed that was the case in other cities. As to actually getting a cab on NYE it is almost impossible here in Boston and was one reason I have toned down the celebration over the last few years.

    Erm… doesn't he own a brand of vodka?

    Ummm they do this in Vegas already. They've been doing it for the past couple of years. So the bitch needs to stop taking credit for it.

    P.S. Public transportation suxx ass. Just call the people who take you home in your own car! much better.

    NYC and Vegas are two cities where people take cabs, buses and/or subways already when they are out partying on NYE. Basically he's giving people extra money in their pockets to party it up. Nothing wrong with that, but then let's call it what it is. The cities that could actually benefit from this "generosity" are located pretty much anywhere else in the U.S., like LA for example. But it's not like in LA you are ever going to get anywhere on $15 in cab fare and I'm sure the "generosity" till has a ceiling. Just sayin!! Diddy fail!!!!

    totally wish we had that in sydney, aus! i think it is a great idea especially when nye is a party celebration, people need that safe way in getting home or else they just look for another unsafe solution. I would defs take advantage of that situation if i was in the us



  22. 22

    It's a hella lot more than the greedy-ass big-nosed Upper East Sider$$$ ever do for anybody but themselves.

    Focusing on safety - sounds good to me.



  24. 24

    Wow! Diddy is actually doing something that is not totally self-serving? I'm impressed. This is a really great idea.



  25. 25

    I love Diddy. How can you not love this guy? He's just a cool guy.



  26. 26

    wow that's actually kinda awesome….i thought he only shelled out money for his gazillion dollar parties, but he's using it for something really good here



  27. 27

    Good on him!
