About SLO Safe Ride

Our Story

SLO Safe Ride was founded in 2010 by two Cal Poly students and one long time San Luis Obispo resident. The three co-founders noticed that it was very difficult to get a safe ride home from the local bars. Unhappy with this finding, they purchased a used van and began offering students, tourists, and local residents a safe transportation option. Their reputation for friendly customer service and safe rides spread throughout San Luis Obispo. Soon, they were asked to provide larger vehicles for winery and brewery tours. Then, even larger vehicles for weddings and festivals. This growth has continued, resulting in the large fleet and professional drivers you can book today!

Our Mission

Our mission is to exceed client expectations by providing the highest quality of service possible in a timely manner. Whether it is a ride to the airport or an all-day wedding shuttle, we believe in holding our transportation to the highest standard. Clean vehicles, friendly drivers, and prompt service are our trademarks, and we hope every customer steps out of our vehicles with a smile.

Our Culture

Because we strive so hard to maintain excellence, we put a premium on accountability. Accountability at SLO Safe Ride means the ownership, management, and staff all work together to promote a product we are proud to associate ourselves with. We want each customer to walk away with an experience that leads them to tell their friends and family about the great service provided by SLO Safe Ride.
