When you’ve been out drinking and you have your vehicle and need to get yourself and your ride home, Drive My Ride will drive you in yours.
Simply call (403) 408-RIDE (7433) to book a trip. We’ll send a team of two drivers. One will drive you in your ride while the other driver follows in their car (the shadow). It’s that simple You can also pre-book your trip for later in the evening or a future date and time all together.

Questions commonly asked
- How do you calculate the price?
The shadow car (the one following) clears the odometer on their car. This will record the km’s traveled. It’s $28.00 for the first km and $2.10 for every one after that.
- Can I bring my friends?
Yes of course. As long as there’s a seat belt for everyone in the vehicle including the driver.
- Can anyone go in the shadow car. (The driver’s ride)?
Sorry, no can do. Calgary has bylaws and legislation prohibiting this. We are also not insured to transport customers in our personal vehicles.
- Do people use this service when their children are with them?
All the time! Those still in the car seat stage really enjoy the ease of having their vehicle. A wonderful example at a young age for children to experience responsible drinking.
