[December 21, 2013]  There's a safer alternative to driving for anyone who has too much to drink while celebrating the Christmas holiday. On 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 those nights, call the cab company, A Green Cab of Lincoln, at 732-TAXI (8294).
