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!

SafeRide is a fantastic service offered to the Atlanta community. They go beyond just getting you home, they drive you in your own car back home. Avoiding the hassle then next day of getting back to your car, finding it has been towed/booted, etc. it's also a great place to volunteer.

Please don’t drink and drive. Call SafeRide and be driven home in your own car. It will save you a trip back, possibly towing or boot fees, or DUI charges, and it could even save someone’s life.

I did some volunteering for SafeRide America and it was a cool & rewarding experience. SafeRide America is a true asset to the communities they provide their services to because not only do they drive you, but also your car home. It is definitely taking customer service to the next level. Keeping drunk drivers off the road an making sure they make it home with their vehicle is a service above all others. If you're looking for a great volunteer experience or you need to get home after a night of too many drinks, call Safe Ride America!!!

The drivers are so efficient and friendly, I have been helping for a few months and I can tell you they move fast and are eager to help. It cost less than a taxi and they drive your car along with yourself home. That still wows me. The convenience of this program is just amazing. The staff is extremely passionate to their cause and you can feel it whenever you talk to anyone that works here at SafeRide. They also help out hospitals who can't find rides for some patients are getting released or got a dose of medicine that recommended not to drive after taking. It just is impressive!

I worked with SafeRide doing community service. I drove and helped them with a little recruiting. The owners are very down to earth and intelligent. They are worth the call if you drive out then happen to drink and need to get home safely with your vehicle!!

I went into this experience with Saferide America not quite knowing what to expect and was welcome by such an accommodating and delightful staff. Everyone was very professional and also seemed to see the big picture about what we are really doing to impact the community. I have enjoyed every moment during my volunteer time and will recommend to anyone else that desires to volunteer. I will also make sure all my friends and family know to use the service if ever necessary.

These guy are amazing were there to help me any way they could and allowed me to get my community service done even though I'm all the way in salt lake city, UT. Being able to do that allowed me to get the option of early termination on my probation easily. They even offered me some other options if they couldn't accommodate me I hope they grow all the way to the Midwest so I can use the service I got to help.

If you're party is out drunk with a car and want to get home safely in your own car, give SafeRide a call. They will come out and pick you and your car up and take you to your destination. It's cheaper than ubering home and then another uber back to your car in the morning, plus no more worrying if your car will be booted or towed! Friendly staff and most pickups usually happen within 10-20 minutes.
P.S. If you need community service hours, you can do them here. It doesn't get much easier than driving around at night time while knowing you're helping prevent DUI's and possibly worse acts caused by an impaired driver.

Great company and great service. I worked as a volunteer Chase Driver for a few weeks and really enjoyed it. The drivers were polite, the customer service guys stayed on the phone from 6pm-4am, and the customers seemed very happy with their service. Some of the riders even requested specific drivers by name to pick them up. For the rate they charge, the service far exceeded what I thought it would be. I was excited to work with SafeRide as a Volunteer, and I will absolutely use their service in order to get to/from the bars safely while impaired. Don't make the mistake of driving impaired, just call them. They are friendly, cheap, and very easy to use!

Horrible company! They have gone from free when they started, to the most expensive service in Atlanta. And their customer service is the worst, as they use community service volunteers that have been ordered by the courts to do community service, most commonly for DUIs and drug charges. Many of the volunteers never leave the office, just sit around playing on their phones all night and receiving hours. We have heard from many people they they paid for their community service hours by giving money directly to the owner, highly unethical and illegal.

Our company has had to block the owner from our Facebook and Youtube pages, as he keeps posting lies about our company, which he has done on this site also.

If you need a ride home with your vehicle, there are many other more affordable and professional services to use.

Magnificent customer service, they picked me and my buddies up from the Falcons game last week and saved the day! Definitely recommend this service for anyone in the Atlanta area. Free cab service. Better than Uber or any cab service. Top Notch!

I've been working with Saferide for a few months as volunteer. It's a great company who have a great cause! The premise of the company is that they drive folks home in their own car who are too impaired to drive themselves. It's a great option for people who want to indulge but also want to get their cars home as well. The Saferide staff is flexible and professional; always willing to work with you. The only drawback to volunteering is the late hours. Most nights you will be working until 4AM, so you may be a little tired in the morning!
