[August 01, 2012]  The Healthy Communities Partnership is encouraging those who celebrate a little too much at the Logan County Fair beer tent this weekend to call for a free and safe ride home.

On Friday and Saturday, the Safe Ride program will be available in Lincoln to those who need it. Safe Ride is a free ride home, sponsored by the Healthy Behaviors Task Force, an initiative of the Healthy Communities Partnership.

"Safe Ride helps to keep our streets safer on nights when children and families are more likely to be celebrating away from home. Our hope is that the community will remember the service is available and use it when necessary," said Angela Stoltzenburg, marketing and community partnerships manager.

Safe Ride is also available during the art and balloon fest, Labor Day weekend, the night before Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve.

To receive a free ride home within the city limits on any of these nights, call American Cab of Lincoln at 735-9696.
