Sean Coles – Owner/Operator
Safe Ride Youth Transport is a new transport company based out of
St. George, Utah. They transport males and females under the age of 17 or over eighteen with a court order, to any location accessible
by normal transportation route. Transports can take place within hours of completion of all the necessary paperwork.
The owner/operator of Safe Ride, Sean Coles, has been youth counselor and has been a program director for a youth treatment program
in St. George for five years. Prior to that, he served in the United States Army in Special Operations for ten years before receiving
an honorable discharge. He is certified both in CPR/First Aid and nonviolent crisis intervention (CPI). Each vehicle he uses is equipped
with a TV/VCR and portable video surveillance.
Sean’s experience has convinced him that transporting youth to or from a facility is an important part of the entire treatment program.
“At Safe Ride transport we understand the importance of getting children from point A to point B in a comfortable environment, where
they can be introduced to behavior modification opportunities in a non-threatening way. Our goal is to have the child take responsibility
for his or her actions as the first step to independence and responsible living. We believe that each child should be treated with
dignity and respect.”
