HOW IT WORKS
PURCHASE A SEAT ON
ANY OF OUR TOURS OR ADVENTURES
Do good by having fun! All of our tours and adventures qualify for Ride for Ride. We keep track of every ticket sold so every single sale results in a Detroit kid in need getting a safe ride.
WE WORK WITH SCHOOLS AND YOUTH PROGRAMS IN NEED
There’s a tremendous need for safe youth transportation in Detroit yet most schools and programs cannot afford the high cost of bussing. We work closely with quality youth programs to identify the kids most in need of transportation to build true educational equality across all neighborhoods.
THEY GET THE SAFE RIDES THEY NEED TO SCHOOL AND PROGRAMS
When enough rides are gathered, we head out to the neighborhood and make dreams happen! Sometimes a simple bus ride is all the difference it takes to get to graduation when your home is miles from the nearest school. Our dream is every child in Detroit getting a ride every time they need one and we’re one ride closer to that when you buy a ride on one of our tours.
THE RESULT IS AMAZING
FROM RIDES COMES MAGIC
Amazing things happen when a kid has a chance to prosper. Studies have shown there’s all kinds of good things that come out of a simple ride:
In Detroit, attendance starts off strong at the start of the year and drops off dramatically as it gets darker earlier and the weather turns cold. Safe, reliable rides keep attendance higher than any other initiative.
BETTER GRADUATION RATES
Regular attendance in school and participation in after-school programs causes a large increase in high school graduation rates. More grads means more opportunities and more success in communities throughout Detroit for the long haul.
INCREASED YOUTH SAFETY
Incidents of violence against youth happen most in the hours immediately before and after school. By giving kids a safe ride door-to-door with both a safety-minded driver and youth-trained conductor onboard, our kids and their parents can breathe easier knowing they’re out of harm’s way.
