There's a safer alternative to
driving for anyone who has too much to drink during the Lincoln Art
& Balloon Festival this weekend. Safe Ride will be available in
Lincoln on Friday and Saturday to those who need it. Safe Ride is a
free ride home, sponsored by the Healthy Communities Partnership.
"Safe Ride keeps the 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
that bartenders will suggest it when necessary," said Angela
Stoltzenburg, manager of the Healthy Communities Partnership.
Ride will also be available on 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 the cab company, A Green Cab of Lincoln, at
