Moving Those In Need Forward
Who the program Serves
Since it's inception in 1996, DONATE A RIDE has grown tremendously and is now helps thousands of Edmontonians every year through local social service agencies. The agencies provide the transit tickets to low-income families that are in need of basic transportation to get to employment, educational and social services, improving their quality of life.
How It Works
DONATE A RIDE funds are used to purchase transit tickets which are distributed to local Edmonton social service agencies.
DONATE A RIDE is a City of Edmonton initiated charity led by Councillor Andrew Knack, Co-Chair and Councillor Aaron Paquette, Co-chair.
United Way* is the official financial partner in DONATE A RIDE. All transactions and accounting, including issue of tax receipts, are handled by the United Way of the Alberta Capital Region.
