Celebrating 25 Years of Community Service

Safe Ride Home Sudbury is a not-for-profit, volunteer driven organization dedicated to the fight against impaired driving.

We spread awareness and education to prevent impaired driving, and throughout the holiday season, operate the the Holiday Safe Ride Home Service. Each year, approximately 8,000 Sudburians receive a Safe Ride Home in their own vehicle by a team of volunteers.

Our services could not happen without the generous support of our sponsors, our community partners and our dedicated volunteers.

Our Partnership with the Greater Sudbury Police Service

Since its inception, Safe Ride Home Sudbury has worked in partnership with Greater Sudbury Police Service spreading community awareness and education to prevent impaired driving. SRHS is an active participant in the Greater Sudbury Police Service RIDE Program, where we attend spot checks throughout the year delivering our important message to plan ahead for a Safe Ride Home.

Community Awareness and Education Initiatives

Our History

For eighteen years, a chapter of a well known national designated driver program operated in Sudbury. Following a carefully thought out decision, this chapter was discontinued in 2017 in favour of a local organization that would allow more flexibility and autonomy in decision making to better meet the needs of our community.

Safe Ride Home Sudbury was established to continue the long-standing tradition of providing a community service assisting Sudburians in safely securing a ride home and to spread awareness and education to prevent impaired driving.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can use Safe Ride Home Sudbury?

Safe Ride Home Sudbury isn’t a taxi service. It’s a unique program that gets both vehicles and drivers home safely. So while anyone can call, you must have a vehicle in order to get a ride. You also need to wear seat belts so if you have more passengers than seat belts, someone will be staying behind.

Is the service confidential?

Absolutely! All volunteers sign a form agreeing not to provide any information that might be used to identify a client, their passengers or their addresses. So don’t let worries about discretion drive you away.

What does it cost to use Safe Ride Home Sudbury?

Safe Ride Home Sudbury is FREE but donations are gratefully accepted. All donations support local youth programs in our community.

How do I use Safe Ride Home Sudbury?
