With the holiday season around the corner, people may be celebrating the occasion sharing drinks with friends and family.
And for the four weekends coming up to Christmas and including New Year’s Eve, you can have yourself and your car picked up and dropped off at home by the volunteers from Operation Red Nose.
Chris Wilson says they’ve even added technology to help make sure people aren’t drinking and driving.
“It’s an app, so people that are out, you know at a Christmas party or at a pub having a good time, they can access the app, it gives them the local number they should call to find out where to get a ride.”
Wilson says Operation Red Nose operates in all Metro Vancouver municipalities except the City of Vancouver.
Wilson says it’s a great option and it’s growing throughout the region.
“It’s definitely making a big difference for sure, some area it’s growing, continuously growing, other areas it’s maybe plateauing a bit, but for the most part what we find, is people really getting the message.”
He says Operation Red Nose runs entirely on donations.
