Implementing Responsible Beverage Service


Encourage the Use of Transit and Taxis

As a step towards publicizing responsible beverage service, establishments must encourage the use of public transport options such as transit and taxis. Late-night transit service is available in selected areas of the province until the early hours of the morning. Keeping a few transit tickets on the premises to give to intoxicated guests could be handy.

Taxi service is available virtually everywhere in the province. The owner of a licensed establishment may want to consider having a direct line and a house account and/or vouchers with a taxi company.

The Get Home Safe Program offered by BC Liquor stores provides free transit tickets for patrons of charitable fundraising events that are accessible by transit.
