Send a link to a friend

[November 19, 2012]  There's a safer alternative to driving for anyone who has too much to drink while celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday.

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.

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.
