This is a great company that works similar to Uber or Lyft, but mainly for drunk drivers only. Prices are great and they drive YOUR CAR to your end location. This means no pesky double trips to grab your vehicle in the morning. Friendly customer service and fast!

Stellar customer service!!! I have never received such exceptional treatment from any other service provider such as Uber or Lift, when I was picked up I was greeted very nicely and the driver was dressed formally making the experience all the better. I enjoyed this service very much, it made my life much easier and most importantly ensured my safety by avoiding drunk driving while at the same time waking up with my vehicle intact the next day! Will be using this service again, I am very satisfied.

Have you ever went out to go eat then end up drinking too much or spontaneously at the club or bar with your friends to now wonder how you're going to get home safely? Well that's when Safe Ride America comes and saves the day. A quick phone call and a driver will come to me and my car then drive me home in my car while another Safe Ride car follows us home to pick up the driver. The cost is priced right considering it's costed me equal or less than if I used Uber/Lyft roundtrip and I don't have to pick up my car the following day. The people that run this show are also great, dispatcher is always on top of it, and the drivers are friendly and really take care of driving my car. I can't value and appreciate what they do enough! It's always cheaper than a DUI!!!

Great opportunity to get community service hours quickly. The staff is helpful and welcoming especially Mike. I was paired with Paula and she made the time fly it was time to go home before I knew it. If you work during the day the you know the difficulties of finding time for community service, however, with saferide I could complete my hours right after work. I cannot them enough for community service as well as for rides.

Saferide America provides an awesome service! They drive you home in your car. Let's face facts, most people that drive impaired would never do it if they new someone was available to drive for them. If you find yourself in a situation where you should not drive but need to get you and your car home, call Saferide America.

I have volunteered for Saferide multiple times, helping them get their word out and connect with people who need help driving their cars home. The people that head things up at Saferide are very upbeat and excited about their mission. They really show their appreciation for the work you do. I did everything from transporting drivers between rides to helping them analyze their market.

It was a great volunteer experience.

I helped drivers get people home safely. There was a great satisfaction in performing this service. All the drivers are very passionate/professional and are able to accommodate every customers specific needs. The administration was organized extremely well with exceptional leadership with people that understand and are experts in the industry. More people should take advantage of the services they offer

I volunteered for SafeRide and was very impressed with the service and professionalism of their drivers. I would highly recommend their service to get you and your car/truck home safe in the same trip. No need to go and get your car/truck the next day and be late to work. GREAT SERVICE

I have seen first hand how Saferide is doing the actual work of keeping the road safe. Their customer service is very patient and understanding. They bring your car to you or take it wherever you want it to be. They are very flexible and work with your schedule. You can schedule a pickup and be guaranteed you car is going to be where you want it to be.

I started working with them doing my community service hours and I haven't had any issues myself. I have also been a customer a couple times.

They have state of the art Mobile applications that help you contact them anytime and they are quick to respond.

Definitely download their app SaferideNow and register. You may need them when you don't feel like downloading an app and typing 16 digits of you credit card. But you can also call them when you need them and pay cash. - Like I said very flexible.

Great experiences for both customers and volunteer drivers.

An amazing service providing not only a safe ride for those who drink, but also providing safe transportation of their vehicle to be there the morning after.

Great hour opportunities for volunteers who are paired up with truly professional drivers.

I would like to say thank you to Saferide America and Mr. Mike Thompson, (director) for creating such a valuable, needed service organization... I had Court ordered community service and did considerable research of 501 (c) 3 non-profit organizations, looking to spend my time in a positive, productive manner giving a little of myself to help others! When I found Saferide America and read their mission statement, I knew my search was over... When you can walk away from any situation feeling better than before giving of yourself, you help created a start to inner peace accomplishment! Every time I walked away from volunteering with Saferide America, I felt great due to the small part I may have offered not allowing someone to drive impaired, for their safety as well as the safety of the masses on the highways... The vision and mission of Saferide America are straight from the heart, create a opportunity to help yourself by offering such a valuable, needed protective service of others complimented by a warm, caring, sincere and professional demeanor! ... Respectfully: Alton K. Edwards

SafeRide is the perfect volunteer option for someone who needs to knock out their community service outside of regular business hours. The organization is great, the employees are very nice and the service offered is very important. SafeRide helps keep the roads safe by providing people with an alternative to getting behind the wheel after drinking.

I've participated in being a Chase Driver and in this role this truly gives you insight into the value of this service. A person who's had 1 too many can safely not only get home, but also have their vehicle home too. I know we used to leave our cars in club parking lots, on streets, etc... then having to wonder if it's been towed, broken into, still there, etc... Saferide not only gets you and your car home, but you most importantly are not driving impaired on the street nor going to jail with DUI charges which has a very high price in all aspects of your life.... Always call Saferide if you ever question your ability to be safe!!!! This applies to all Saferide location, but mine was in Atlanta, GA

Saferide America is a great service. It's inexpensive for the amazing service they provide. You can have someone pick you and your car up for a low cost and saves lives from DUI aftermath. After following on Instagram and facebook I found out they can also save you from getting a DUI less safe ! Such a great organization I recommend to anyone who is thinking about driving impaired ! I did my community service for Gwinnett county with SafeRide and it was easier than any other nonprofit organization. I would recommend to anyone who needs hours. Mike the owner is a really nice man and is really helpful !

I have volunteered for SafeRide for around 20 hours now. It has been a great experience. The staff is friendly and hard working. My work schedule is super busy Monday-Friday and they have been fantastic about keeping me informed of when they have openings. I have been imressed at how professional the drivers and volunteers are. Also, the fact that they go to different places and offer people rides without the person having to figure it out on their own is awesome! Has been a great experience.

I worked here for a total of 17 hours so far and it has been an amazing experience. It's a late night shift that helps take drunk people home from their night out. You get to travel around Atlanta and the dispatcher and paired driver are kind and friendly. They are really doing a service when you see people stumble out of the bar. Drivers don't have to worry about their car and gets home safe!

My schedule varies through out the week at work, so it was hard for me to find places to volunteer. Saferide worked perfectly because I could choose times that worked for me. The experience was great and the people were even better. I love the fact that they get people and their cars home safely without hassle or worry. A really trustworthy service. I would suggest it to anyone.

Me working retail hours was very hard but I came across Saferide America and I was able to complete my hours because once I left work I was able to do community service at night. Very good company.

SafeRide is a fantastic service for both patrons and businesses. If you are inebriated, this service will come and pick you and your car up as opposed to you driving home yourself. You have your own designated driver. It prevents your harming yourself, your vehicle, and/or another person.

I've volunteered here several times, and I can speak to both the service, and the volunteer opportunity. As far as the volunteer opportunity, it is a fairly easy way to earn hours. You drive your car with a SafeRide driver with you, and they are then responsible for transporting the customer home, in the customers car. No one intoxicated or otherwise is ever in your car, and the SafeRide driver handles everything!

On the service side, many people can benefit from it! Never have fear when you're out with your car, and may have had too much to drink. This service is a reasonably priced way to get you, AND your car home. They have a very speedy response time, and their dispatch team will have someone out to you in no time! Save their number for the future, just in case the unexpected happens!

Working with SafeRide America was a wonderful experience. While spreading the word about SafeRide to local restaurants & drinking spots, people were very receptive to the idea of a designated driver service who drives both the patron AND their vehicle. There's no peace of mind like knowing your car is with you after a night on the town.

SafeRide is a very convenient and professional service that keeps you and everyone else on the roads safe after a night of drinking, and allows you to have your car home with you the next day. The staff is also very courteous and prompt when responding to calls. I definitely recommend!
