Tow To Go offers passengers and their vehicle a confidential local ride to a safe locations within 10 miles. This program is free and available to AAA members and non-members in Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Nebraska, Iowa, North Dakota, and Indiana.

“The Tow To Go program is an effective way to promote the use of Designated Drivers and help prevent impaired driving,” said Katja Zastrow, Vice President of Corporate Social Responsibility for Anheuser-Busch.

Since 1998, Tow To Go is has been a safety net for motorist who did not plan a designated ride home and has successfully removed over 24,000 impaired drivers from the road.
