"I think it's a tragedy. I can't imagine it will be good for the community."

Heather McDaniel

"It's really unfortunate that the program has to be shut down. While I don't condone underage drinking, teenagers do drink and having a safe ride home is incredibly important."

James Castro

"I think it should stay open. It could save lives."

Alex Beejan

"I hate to see this program go."
