Profile of a Driverseat Designated Driver

Putting your finger on what makes someone a great Coachman with Driverseat is very difficult, if not, impossible. Every person who has or is working with us does so for different reasons. We have had a number of people over the years who have said, “I never thought I would do a job like this, […]

I Wouldn’t Have Been a Driverseat Coachman

Reflecting back on when I was younger, life was simple, lots of fun, and my wife and I were DINK’s (dual income no kids). Because we did not need extra income at that time (which is not the case today with three kids), I would not necessarily have ever considered driving as Coachman for Driverseat. Our […]

Crowdfunding and How It Applies to MiiRyde

Crowdfunding has become a significant tool for charities, personal campaigns, and businesses alike. The concept of crowdfunding is a simple one: projects, ventures and campaigns get funded by raising small amounts of money from large numbers of people. In this blog post, co-founder Brian Bazely discusses some of the reasons why we chose crowdfunding as a […]

MiiRyde – The App to End Impaired Driving

Make sure you watch to the end!

Ending Impaired Driving As Easy as 1… 2… 3… Introducing MiiRyde

We have this crazy idea, that we can have such an impact on impaired driving, that we might actually be able to put an end to it. Can we do it alone?

No, not really. It will require our community of franchise partners, our friends, our family, business partners, vendors, our friends in the hospitality industry, […]

Busy Nights Ahead

Last night marked the busiest night (with exception to New Year’s Eve) in Driverseat’s history. This is very encouraging given that it was a typical December Saturday night. Many Holiday parties were booked, which kept our teams extremely busy in all communities, and call-in traffic was at an all time high, as our collective dispatchers […]

Changing Decades Old Habits Not an Easy Task

In 1981, in Kitchener, ON, the first household recycling pilot was launched. Prior to this time, all waste generated in a household was taken to landfill in plastic garbage bags. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Recycling_in_Canada.

While it may seem like that was a lifetime ago, and we could not imagine life without recycling today, it took a significant shift in mindset, […]

Drinking and driving in Arizona? We guarantee you won’t after you hear about this…

Drinking and driving in Maricopa County (which includes Phoenix and surrounding areas) comes with a very unique punishment. My co-founder, Brian, and I were in the area recently for a conference, and learned that the local Sheriff (in most circles, a very unpopular man) created Tent City more than 16 years ago. This is a […]

Graduated Licensing is Brilliant

Over a recent family dinner, I had an interesting conversation with my wife’s parents, her grandfather and my two daughters, both of which have their driver’s license but both of which are subject to the graduated licensing system.

My daughters grew up knowing that if you drink, you are not to drive.  Even in the days prior […]
