Port Me Home - Getting You and Your Car Home Safely

The holiday season is filled with opportunities to celebrate! Glittering parties, delicious food and festive drinks are available in abundance but a safe ride home isn’t always as easy to find. Port Me Home is a professional designated driver service that opened in June 2014 and has cars stationed in Port Stanley, St. Thomas and London.

Owner Dawn McKinlay was operating a house cleaning business when she realized that a need existed in Elgin County for a designated driver service. Instead of calling a cab when you are out, call Port Me Home and they will get both you and your vehicle home safely. This service is perfect for Christmas, New Year’s Eve and Birthday parties as well as weddings and stag and does.

Port Me Home only charges users for the trip home and not for the distance to get to the pick-up location and is particularly affordable for a group of several people.
“We are less expensive than a hotel room and you don’t have to worry about going to pick up your car the next morning,” said McKinlay.

They are open from 5:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m. Friday and Saturday nights and Sunday nights of long weekends. The service is available 24/7 for those who call and pre-book their times 24 hours in advance.

In the future Port Me Home hopes not only to offer designated driver services but to offer services to take people to their doctor’s appointments and surgeries. Certain surgeries such as cataract surgery, laser eye surgery and wisdom tooth surgery forbid people from driving home by themselves. Instead of requiring friends and family to take time off work to drive them to and from appointments, Port Me Home will be available.

Port Me Home can be booked by phone, e-mail or text. For more information on Port Me Home’s services visit, or call/text 519-495-9858
