Safe Ride will be available in Lincoln
on Wednesday to those who need it. Safe Ride is a free ride home,
sponsored by the Healthy Communities Partnership.
"The night before Thanksgiving is
traditionally a time in Lincoln when people get together with old
friends who are home for the holidays. Safe Rides will help to keep
the streets safer for everyone who is celebrating. Our hope is that
the community will remember the service is available and that
bartenders will suggest it when necessary," said Angela Stoltzenburg,
community partnerships manager.
Safe Ride will also be available on
Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve.
To receive a free ride home within
the city limits on any of these nights, call the cab company,
American Cab of Lincoln, at 735-9696.
