[December 22, 2012]  There's a safer alternative to driving for anyone who has too much to drink during while celebrating the Christmas holiday. On Monday, Christmas Eve, Safe Ride will be available in Lincoln to those who need it. Safe Ride is a free ride home, sponsored by the Healthy Communities Partnership.

"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, at 735-9696.

Healthy Communities Partnership is a collaborative organization comprised of community agencies and private individuals striving to create the healthiest community in America. It is supported by the Abraham Lincoln Healthcare Foundation. For more information or for updates, "like" Healthy Communities Partnership on Facebook or call 217-605-5008.
