HELENA – AAA Montana is bringing back their Tipsy Tow service on Super Bowl Sunday to help people get home safely after the big game.

“Whether you’re a Rams fan, belong to Pats Nation or are just watching for the commercials, AAA wants motorists to plan ahead for a safe ride home if they are attending Super Bowl festivities,” said Michelle Donati, spokesperson for AAA Montana.

Tipsy Tow provides a free ride home and vehicle tow of up to 10 miles for any driver, not just AAA members. For mileage beyond this, motorists are charged a standard towing rate.

The service will be available in the following communities from 6 p.m. on Sunday until 6 a.m. on Monday:

  • Helena (includes East Helena & Montana City)
  • Kalispell/Whitefish
  • Livingston
  • Missoula
  • Billings
  • Bozeman (includes Belgrade)
  • Hamilton
  • Polson

Anyone who wants to use the service to ensure a safe ride home for an impaired motorist should call 1-800-AAA-HELP (1-800-222-4357) and state that they need a Tipsy Tow.

Services will not be provided to motorists requesting a tow to another drinking establishment, repair facility or any other location other than their home or a hotel if the motorist is, or plans to become, a guest.

AAA notes that other services not covered include requests to start a vehicle, flat tire change, gas delivery, taxi service and requests to transport more than two people with the vehicle.
