Tell us a little about your company.
SOS Safe Ride is the flagship program of the local nonprofit The Safe Ride Foundation, which is a nonprofit organization working to end drunk driving in Frederick County and parts beyond.  SOS Safe Ride tries to eliminate a potential drunk driver's final excuse of "I need my car" by providing an easy and affordable way to transport customers home, but within their own vehicles.

Who are your customers?
Our customers and clients are those who enjoy the nightlife. Young professionals who understand the dangers/consequences of drunk driving, and are responsible enough to do their part to prevent it.

What is the best part of what you do? Most Challenging?
The best part is by far the feeling when get when someone shows appreciation for what we're trying to do for Frederick County, in other words, we love when people simply "get it".

The most challenging?  While we absolutely love every one of our clients, one can imagine the challenges that come with having a clientele that is intoxicated 100% of the times that they call you.  Always makes for a fun, sometimes interesting evening.

What made you choose to be a sponsor for the AAF-GF?
One of our volunteers is helping to coordinate the event and we loved what the event is all about, we're excited to be a part of it!

How can people get in touch with your company to learn more?

Any industry advice you can pass along?
For the transportation sector, convenience is key.  At the end of the day, what you're truly selling is "Time".
