Since its inception in 1996, Donate a Ride has distributed more than $2 million worth of transit tickets to those in need and helps thousands of Edmontonians every year through local social service agencies. These agencies provide the transit tickets to those in crisis and low-income families that are in need of basic transportation to get to employment, educational and social services, improving their quality of life.
Please note that the Donate a Ride program no longer accepts donations. Instead, please send contributions directly to the agencies supported by Donate a Ride, which are listed on the Donate a Ride website.
The Donate a Ride program will be changing in 2023, as Edmonton Transit Service phases in Arc, an electronic fare payment system for transit agencies in the Edmonton Metropolitan area. For more information, go to the Donate A Ride website.
Details of the new program will be communicated mid-2022.
