SLO Safe Ride Anniversary

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, an all-day wedding shuttle, or wine tasting tour, 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.
SLO Safe Ride Core Values

Consistent excellence in customer serviceThe SLO Safe Ride experience starts with our marketing and office staff, and does not stop until the ride is over.  We strive to make our products thoroughly enjoyable, accommodating, and stress free. Positive Problem SolvingThe most important thing to do as a team when faced with adversity is to overcome it, regardless of who is at fault.  We are above finger pointing, and aim to raise the morale of our co-workers by helping them through any situation.
