What is Safe Rides?
Brainerd Lakes TZD, Brainerd Taxi and Brainerd Community Action have partnered together to bring a way to safely make it home at night.
The program offers free rides from establishments in Brainerd to a residence or hotel within 20 miles — no questions asked.
“If a Safe Ride prevents one impaired driver from getting into their vehicle and trying to drive, then the Safe Ride has worked,” Maier said. “With support from Brainerd Community Action and collaboration amongst our local participating businesses, I believe that the Safe Ride program will succeed, and our hope is to be able to expand into the city of Baxter and nearby surrounding areas in the future.”
As the program is in its pilot phase, donations are welcome to help see the program grow to a larger service area.
