Driver, take me to Penn Station. Diddy will take care of the fare.
Hip-hop mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs, for the second year in a row, is helping New Year's revelers get home safely after partying in Times Square by offering $15 debit cards that can be redeemed for cab rides.
For those who prefer the subway over a taxi, this year Combs and sponsor Cîroc premium vodka also are offering single-fare MetroCards valued at $2.25.
"We made a huge impact last year helping New York get home safely, so I'm proud to announce that we're bringing Safe Rides back in an even bigger way," Combs said in a statement.
Thousands of debit cards and MetroCards will be given to adults Thursday between 8 and 11 p.m., or while supplies last.
The program, coordinated with the help of E! Entertainment and the New York City Taxi & Limousine Commission, is also taking place in Las Vegas this year.
Combs said the program aims to show "that a sophisticated holiday celebration doesn't end when the ball drops, but when everyone gets home safely.">>For breaking news, follow Newsday on Twitter
