Happy New Year!! We hope everyone has a great time celebrating the New Year tonight. Please use a designated driver if you are going to be out drinking tonight. Give us a call at 355-2222. It will be really busy tonight so please call a little early for your ride. Also, we have seen that the Portsmouth Sheriff's Department is offering free rides tonight. That is in Portsmouth, VA. As far as we know, the Scioto County Sheriff's Department nor the Portsmouth Police Department will be giving any free rides home. However, they most likely will give you a ride to jail if you decide to drink and drive. Don't take any chances, call us for a safe ride home!

We are still running a limited service area today. The weather service is calling for another 1 - 3 inches today which will probably slow us down. The drivers will only go where they can safely get to. Please be patient with us while we're dealing with the bad weather. 355-2222

We have shut down as of 9:15 pm tonight. scioto County is now on a level 2 snow emergency. We will open up as soon as possible when the roads start clearing up tomorrow. Thanks for your understanding.

I have checked the road conditions a couple of times today. The main roads are a little better but the side roads are still pretty bad. We have been in contact with the city and was told they will be out all night plowing. The temps are going to drop but if they can clear most of the snow off, it should be better by morning. As of now, we are going to remain closed until tomorrow morning or when the snow emergency level is dropped to a level 1. I am sorry for any inconvenience this might cause but for the safety of our employees and customers, I feel this is for the best. Thank you for your understanding.

We wanted to let everyone know that Santa will be at the Air Evac base on Union St between 11th and 12th streets today from noon until 4pm. You can drop off any donations (cash or toys) for the employees of Life Ambulance that lost their jobs with no notice and did not receive their last paycheck when the company closed without notice. All donations will be used to help give their children a good Christmas this year. Air Evac is not the same company as Life Ambulance. They were sold a couple of years ago. Thanks for all of your help!

Published on 2013-12-21 16:31:28 GMT

If you are in the Portsmouth area today, there is a group of people collecting cash and/or toys at the Portsmouth Big Lots right now. They are collecting to help the former employees of Life Ambulance that lost their jobs when the company closed with no notice. None of the employees received their last paycheck. This would be a terrible thing to go through anytime of the year but a couple of weeks before Christmas made it even worse. They are set up under a canopy in front of the store. Please give anything you can so we can help give their children a nice Christmas.

Don't forget about our canned food drive going on until December 15. Get $1 off your ride for a donated canned food item. 100% of everything donated will be given to the Scioto County Homeless Shelter.

Scioto County's snow emergency level has been reduced from a level 2 to a level 1 as of 1750hrs today. The main roads are in pretty good shape but a lot of the side and back roads are still terrible. We have remained open throughout this snow/ice event and will continue to be. We are still operating on a limited basis. We will not be going out into the county in areas where the driver deems it unsafe. Please be patient with us as the snow causes everything to go a little slower. Call us at 355-ACAB (2222). We will do our best to get to you. Stay warm tonight!

Scioto County has been upgraded to a Level 2 snow emergency. We are open and running as of right now. We are not leaving the city and there are some places we are unable to get to such as the upper end of Waller St, 24th St, Forrest Heights, etc. We will not attempt an area that we feel is unsafe. We do this for the safety of our drivers, our customers, and our vehicles. The snow is still coming down and we are expected to get several more inches before this is over. I do not expect us to be open tonight. I am talking with our drivers and will make a decision as to what time we will be shutting down for the night.
