There is a new company in town that wants to reduce the number of drunk drivers on the streets of Columbia. It's called Valet US, and it was started by two local men.

They drive you home in the comfort of your own car after you and your friends have been out on the town.

"If someone goes out and then decides they can't drive, they give us a call we come on a scooter, fold it up, put it in the back of their car and then drive the customer and their car home and then get back on the scooter off to serve the next customer," Hall Todd, the owner, explains.

Hall and his brother stared Valet US in December.

"It's just one more way to keep intoxicated people off the road and get everyone home safe," Hall says.

Hall thinks his company is something Columbia needs, and so do his customers.

Jordan Beavers has used Valet US four times and thinks others can benefit from it like he has.

"It's most definitely the responsible thing to do it's cheaper than getting a cab home and you have your car in your parking space when you wake up the next morning," he says.

Valet US operates Tuesday through Sunday from 8:00 p.m. until 3:00 a.m.

To schedule a ride call 803-528-6559. You can schedule an appointment or call fifteen minutes before you want to head home. They charge students a flat $10 rate. Non-students will also be charged $3 per mile.
