This year's total is a slight increase from 2014 when the organization provided more than 76,000 holiday rides.
Nez Rouge gave 60,000 rides in Quebec since the season launched on Nov. 27.
This year also saw 56,228 volunteers offer to give rides across Canada — up eight per cent from 2014.
Launched in 1984 in Quebec City, the service gives rides to people too tired or who have consumed too much alcohol to drive their cars themselves.
