Our Story

SLO Safe Ride was founded in 2010 by two Cal Poly students and one longtime 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 growth to winery and brewery tours and wedding transportation has resulted in the large fleet and professional drivers you can book today.
