  • The problem with doing the responsible thing when you are out and have had anything to drink, calling a cab, is that you have to figure out a way to get your vehicle the next day, which can be a hassle and also expensive
  • The other issue is that many cities have a shortage of taxis, like Calgary, Alberta, so you may be waiting for hours for a cab to arrive, and sometimes they don’t come at all
  • I programmed the company’s number into my phone so that I could easily call them the next time I found myself unable to drive home
  • I pulled up the contacts in my phone and called Drivers Choice to see if they were really as convenient as my friend had claimed, and my call was answered with no hold time
  • The best part, after the company actually showing up, was that the next day, we didn’t have to scramble to get our vehicle

      The problem with doing the responsible thing when you are out and have had anything to drink, calling a cab, is that you have to figure out a way to get your vehicle the next day, which can be a hassle and also expensive. The other issue is that many cities have a shortage of taxis, like Calgary, Alberta, so you may be waiting for hours for a cab to arrive, and sometimes they don’t come at all. I have discovered a really ingenious solution to these issues that costs less than a cab does, and has the convenience of driving your vehicle home as well as getting you home safely. I may never take a cab again.

      A friend of mine had been telling me


      about a service in Calgary, called Drivers Choice Designated Drivers, which would pick you up with and drive both you and your vehicle home, for about the same price as a taxi. They show up with two employees in one vehicle, and one drives you home in your vehicle and the other one follows behind. It sounded amazingly simple but so ideal for so many reasons. I programmed the company’s number into my phone so that I could easily call them the next time I found myself unable to drive home.

      That situation occurred this past weekend, when both my husband and I forgot that one of us needed to stop after a drink, and we found ourselves having too much fun to worry about getting ...


      • home. We were out at a party, and while I only had a few drinks, there was no way I was risking driving. I pulled up the contacts in my phone and called Drivers Choice to see if they were really as convenient as my friend had claimed, and my call was answered with no hold time. I gave them my name and location, and they also asked which vehicle I was driving. They said our drivers would arrive within 45 minutes. I was a bit worried, as the party was winding down, and we are tired. I had heard, and personally experienced, cabs that never came or came hours later, so we were skeptical about the 45 minutes. However, 30 minutes later, I got
        a call on my cell phone to say that the driver was outside waiting for us. We were impressed. We were even more impressed when we safely arrived home with a very nice driver driving our vehicle, and we were charged less than what a taxi cab would have cost. For about a 25 minute drive, we were charged $25, so with the tip, it was far less than the $40 that a cab ride would have cost us. The best part, after the company actually showing up, was that the next day, we didn’t have to scramble to get our vehicle; our car was safely parked in our parking spot. Drivers Choice Designated Drivers provides a wonderful service, and has great customer service and low rates.
