Saturday is the last day Operation Nez Rouge will be offering its services this season.

The volunteer drive-home service launched its annual campaign to get drivers home safely during the holiday season at the begining of December.

Organizers say more than 2,000 volunteers are ready to drive New Year's Eve partygoers home for free Saturday night.

They are expecting to get about 4,000 calls Saturday night, across the province.

Operation Nez Rouge runs across the country, but the organization said Quebecers are the ones who use it the most.

Spokesperson David Latouche has said more than half of the 80,000 rides the service provides across Canada every year are in Quebec.
