Safe Ride Home gets you back to home base if you’re unexpectedly unable to drive due to sickness, injury, or another physical impairment. Simply give us a call and we’ll get you and your vehicle home safely.
Please note, this is not meant to replace traditional taxi service. But if you can’t drive yourself home safely, we’ll be there. All the important details are below:
- Safe Ride Home service counts as a regular service call, and is for members in good standing – make sure your membership is up-to-date when you contact us.
- We all want to get home safely. Service or space in the tow truck may be refused due to intoxication, abuse, or concern for our service provider’s safety
- We have space on the passenger side of the tow truck cab for the AMA member only. But we will assist other people accompanying the member, if any, in finding other means of safe transportation to their destination (at their cost).
- There is no extra charge for the service, as long as your requested tow is within the maximum towing distance allowed with your level of membership.
- If you need a longer tow, we’ll ask you to pay for the extra distance on a per-kilometer basis, just like you would for a regular service tow.
- During severe weather or extreme operating conditions — those times when Mother Nature unleashes on our province — we may suspend the Safe Ride Home service.
- We don’t play favourites. Safe Ride Home calls are treated in the same way as vehicle failure calls, and we assign priority based on the nature of the call or situation.
- We must be able to tow it. Safe Ride Home is not available for recreational vehicles or vehicles too large to tow with a standard tow truck.
- Safe Ride Home is offered throughout Alberta.
