Provide a safer community for all.
The Safe Rides program is designed around and committed to providing a safer community for all Ridgefielders. At its core, Safe Rides provides a safe and reliable service within the Ridgefield community by providing free rides to students who are intoxicated and/or otherwise rendered incapable of transportation.
Outside of our main function, however, Safe Rides members work to prevent impaired driving in our community through their efforts in education and fundraising, and through strategic partnerships with organizations such as the RHS Key Club and the Ridgefield Police Department.
