ABOUT-US

Our Mission:


Our mission is to reduce impaired driving and save lives by providing a safe, reliable and affordable transportation alternative for those who choose to be responsible.

Our Story:


Keys to Us Designated Driving Service was established in 1996 by Lionel and Myrna Lachance after the tragic death of their brother-in-law, Basil MacDonald, in a car accident caused by an impaired driver. Basil left behind two small children, and a pregnant wife. His life was not the only lost in this accident; six others also died – the impaired driver who caused this accident was not one of them. It was one of the most severe accidents caused by an impaired driver in Ontario history.

Lionel and Myrna launched the business in December 1996. The original plan was to provide their service during the holiday season only. Word of their business spread quickly through the hospitality industry and, before long, they had to enlist the help of family members and friends to meet the demand for their service. They quickly realized impaired driving was a year-round problem that required a year-round solution.

Today, Keys to Us employs over 60 drivers who currently service Northumberland, Durham, York, Toronto, Peel and Halton Regions with various professional driving services. Thanks to our loyal customers and the many dedicated people who work with us, Keys to Us Ltd has been repeatedly voted and awarded the Reader’s Choice Diamond award for Best Designated Driving Service in both the Oshawa/Whitby and Ajax/Pickering areas!
