Early Times Mint Julep, the "Official Drink of the Kentucky Derby," is teaming up with Yellow Cab to offer over 1,000 taxi vouchers at select locations in Louisville during Kentucky Derby week. "Early Times is proud to partner with Yellow Cab once again to enrich the community's Kentucky Derby experience by helping to ensure safe rides home," said Rob Frederick, director of corporate responsibility for Brown-Forman, parent company of Early Times Mint Julep. Specially-designed Kentucky Derby themed taxis featuring Early Times Mint Julep insignia will be present at nine locations from April 30 to May 1. Patrons will sign the taxi as their personal pledge to "drink responsibly," and in exchange receive a taxi voucher valued at $15. In celebration of Kentucky Derby 140, there will be 140 taxi vouchers available April 30 in the St. Matthews corridor from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m, and on May 1 at Fourth Street Live! between 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. The vouchers can be used with Yellow Cabs as well as their sister companies Checker Cab and Cardinal Cab.
