Operation Red Nose Winnipeg is a FREE designated driving service that will take you home safely after a night out.

As the holiday season approaches, a flurry of festivities and gatherings takes center stage. While these moments of joy and connection are what make the holidays special, they can also pose a significant risk: impaired driving.

In the spirit of keeping our roads safe and our loved ones happy, Operation Red Nose Winnipeg emerges as a beacon of hope. This volunteer-driven initiative has been running since 1995, providing a free designated driving service to anyone who needs a safe ride home after a night out.
