After a night out on the town, many people find themselves standing around debating whether or not they should drive back to their home or hotel. Whether you enjoyed Raleigh’s nightlife to its fullest or had a relaxing evening, it’s a good idea to know all of your options before heading home!
What if driving isn’t an option, but you want to get your car home? Well, Zingo Designated Driver Service can make that happen. Zingo drivers will come to you on a folding motorbike, take your keys, put their motorbike in your trunk and drive you home safely. Then they just unfold their motorbikes and ride away. This service has a $10 pick up fee and $3 charge for every mile, but the drivers are insured and you’ll survive the night with your car waiting for you in your driveway in the morning.
If you would like a lift to your car or you don’t have too far to go, then downtown Raleigh's rickshaws are an eco-friendly and inexpensive way to enjoy the summer night air and sights of Raleigh while reaching your destination. Raleigh Rickshaw Co. not only provides its rickshaws at night, but also provides its services for special events and weddings.
Enjoying Raleigh with a large group? This is a great opportunity to plan ahead and rent a limousine for the evening. Not only will you all get to ride together to your nightlife destination, you’ll also all have a guaranteed fun and stylish ride home! Most limo services in Greater Raleigh charge by the hour, and when you have a large group of 10 or more splitting the costs it can definitely be worth it.
Then, of course, there’s always the cab. There are many cab services in Greater Raleigh that you can find in any phonebook or through the operator. Quick and efficient, cabs will get you where you need to go, although you might be missing out on some other fun alternatives.
