Safe Ride Home Sudbury is a not-for-profit, volunteer driven organization, dedicated to the fight against impaired driving. It is a free, confidential service in which clients are driven home in their own vehicle by a team of volunteers. Donations are gratefully accepted!

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

Our History

Celebrating over 20 years of community service assisting Sudburians in safely securing a ride home.

Continuing a long-standing tradition.

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.

What does that mean for our community?

Safe Ride Home Sudbury will continue to provide our community with dedicated service to ensure friends and family get home safely during the holiday season.

We are wholly supported by our long time partner the Greater Sudbury Police Service.


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?

When you are ready to be picked up call our headquarters at 705-675-CALL (2255) and a team will be dispatched to your location at the earliest opportunity. Please note, we can not accept reservations due to the operational requirements of the service.

Who can volunteer?

You can volunteer by yourself or with friends, for one evening or as many as you can spare. Volunteers must submit a Volunteer Application and Police Information Check form. Applications require time to process. Please ensure that you have your application(s) submitted well in advance of the dates you wish to volunteer for.

Can I volunteer with a group of coworkers?

Definitely! We have an Office Volunteer Package that will help you organize your co-workers.

We rely on the generosity of our community.

To encourage and sustain service such as this, donations are gratefully accepted. We accept donations when you ride with us or email us for more information on how to donate.
