Our Service

Operation Red Nose is a FREE designated driver program to get you AND your vehicle home safe during the Holiday Season!

Call our Red Nose dispatch line 204-347-5518 and schedule a time for a volunteer drive team to bring you home. Two of the drive team members will drive you and your guests home in your vehicle while the third member follows in the team escort vehicle. When you arrive at your drop-off location, the team will reunite and continue to their next assignment.

Our dispatchers will ask you questions to schedule your ride, like:

Operation Red Nose is a designated driver program; we take YOU home in YOUR vehicle.

The more information you can give us the better; it helps us find you and your vehicle at busy Holiday parties and get-togethers.

Two drive team volunteers will drive you home in your vehicle and we need to make sure there is enough room for everyone. If your car has five seat belts, that means you have room for the two drive team volunteers, yourself and two friends. If there are three friends with you; we’ll try to figure out how to make it work with you.

Please help us find you by providing accurate information. If you are in a public place; such as a bar or restaurant, the name will work just fine. If you are at a private party at your friend’s house, please give us the address – house number and all.

We usually don’t call when we are on our way, but it does help if we are having difficulty finding you in a busy bar or Christmas party. Our dispatcher may ask to change your pick up time depending on the night.

Keep an eye out for the drive team by watching for two or three people wearing the iconic red vests. Many times you will find them before they find you.

Telephone lines are open from 9 pm to 2 am on ride nights.

First to call are the first in the queue.

Planning a party? Contact us before your event to give us a heads-up, so we know how many volunteers we’ll need.
