Operation Red Nose has been a part of the community for the past 18 years and the service will continue but under a new name…Safe Ride Home Sudbury.

President, Lesli Green says it will be better tailored to Sudbury as a community in terms of decision making.

Partners and volunteers will stay the same and Deputy Police Chief Al Lekun says services like this give people options, but sometimes it just comes down to the people making the right decision.

Safe Ride Home Sudbury will have the same community partners as Operation Red Nose, just feature a new logo and new number 705-675-CALL(2255).

Green says they will be rolling out more on the changes soon but didn’t say if there would be an expanded schedule.
