Voorhees Saves Lives

Summer is in full swing and Voorhees offers many delicious dining options. With that in mind, the Voorhees Saves Lives program is available to our residents to enjoy a few summer drinks without having to drive.  

In 2015, Voorhees Township initiated the “Saves Lives Program to reduce the incidence of drunk driving and save our police department time and money by reducing the number of driving while intoxicated accidents.

The program provides free rides home to Voorhees residents from any participating restaurant or bar in Voorhees and the ChopHouse in Gibbsboro.  Voorhees and Uber are working together to reduce alcohol related car incidents. Residents should have an active Uber account to receive the voucher.  In any participating restaurant, scan the below QR code with your phone camera, click on the yellow uber.com symbol that pops upand follow the prompts.

The free service will not be provided from one establishment to another but only from the establishment to home. The program is available every day from 9pm to 2am. Voorhees Saves Lives has a limit of two free trips per month with a maximum fare of $15 and tips are not included.

No tax dollars are used for this program. It is fully funded through the Voorhees Citizens Event Foundation, Dooney’s Pub, Iron Hill Brewery, The Library II Restaurant, Ott’s Tavern and The ChopHouse. Please support these establishments.

If the program saves one life, it is well worth it!
