On August 5 and 6, Safe Ride will be available in Lincoln to
those who need it. Safe Ride is a free cab ride home sponsored by
the Healthy Communities Partnership.
“Safe Ride helps keep our streets safer on nights when children and
families are more likely to be celebrating away from home. We
encourage our residents to make the choice not to drink and drive
and instead ask for a free safe ride,” said Angela Stoltzenburg,
Healthy Communities Partnership Manager.
To receive a free ride home within the city limits on any of these
nights, ask the bartender for a Safe Ride ticket.
In 2016, Safe Ride will also be available during the Balloon Fest,
Labor Day, Halloween, the night before Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve
and New Year’s Eve. Safe rides are financially supported by the
Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital Foundation. It is also funded with
proceeds from a Victim Impact Panel held quarterly for local DUI
