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 have been volunteering with Saferide for the past couple of months. The staff and drivers that I have worked with have been very helpful and friendly. This really is a great service. It allows you to get home safely and be able to have your car brought home with you. Very dependable.

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 volunteered with SafeRide to complete my community service requirements. This company was extremely helpful and friendly. They provided more than enough opportunity for me to complete my hours, and they were very professional. I’d recommend SafeRide to anyone looking for an easy, stress-free way of completing your community service hours.

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!
