"Christmas is a time of spending time with friends and families.
Often alcohol is part of the celebration. The Healthy
Communities Partnership offers Safe Rides to help keep the
streets safer for everyone who is celebrating," said Angela
Stoltzenburg, community partnerships manager. "Our hope is that
the community will remember the service is available and that
bartenders will suggest it when necessary."
Safe Ride will
also be available on New Year's Eve.
To receive a free ride home within the city limits on either
of those nights, call the cab company, American Cab of Lincoln,
