MILWAUKEE -- From bar owners to Uber drivers, everyone is keeping an eye on each other to get home safe this New Year.

Uber drivers were warned it's expected to be the busiest holiday of the year. Riders should expect fares to skyrocket.
 
Milwaukee bars, including Steny's Tavern and Grill is equipped with more vouchers than ever this holiday to help people get home safe, including $20 off taxi's and Uber rides.
 
"Our doormen are gonna just evaluate the situation, and as people who are coming in that maybe had too much we're going to thank them for coming in, and give them one of these [vouchers]," said Laura Jean Gwiazdowski, with Steny's Tavern and Grill.
 
The Milwaukee County Transit System is also waiving its fares starting at 8 p.m. New Years Eve through the Miller Lite Free Rides Program.
