For the 29th year, the Dauphin RIDE Program is back for the holiday season. If you've taken your vehicle somewhere whether it being a Christmas party or just to your friends and you've had some drinks, the Dauphin RIDE Program is here for you.
"The purpose of the program is to make sure impaired drivers get home safely. That's just not alcohol either, it could be cannabis as well," said Chair person, Cory Lafontaine.
Volunteers will pick you up and drive you home and there will also be another volunteer that will take your vehicle home as well. The program will begin this Friday at 9:00 p.m. It'll also run on Saturday from 9:00 p.m.-3:00 a.m.
The program also runs on December 13, 14, 20, and 21, all from 9:00 p.m.-3:00 a.m. They will also return on New Year's Eve. There is no charge if you need a ride, but you are able to leave tips.
When in operation, the number to call to get a ride is 638-5707.
You can also get in on volunteering. Whether you want to volunteer every night or just one, the Dauphin RIDE Program is always looking.
"We're always looking for good volunteers. If you have some time on your hands, that would be great," concluded Lafontaine.
If you'd like to volunteer or sponsor for the Dauphin RIDE Program, give John a call at 638-7181.
