Since its creation in 1996 by former City Councillor Alan Bolstad, the DONATE A RIDE program has distributed more than $2 million worth of transit tickets to those in need. Donations made throughout the year are put towards transit tickets to Edmonton agencies that assist clients who are in crisis situations on a short-term basis. 

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.
