'Safe Ride' available Art & Balloon Fest weekend
August 16, 2013, There’s a safer alternative to driving for anyone who has too much to drink during the Lincoln Art & Balloon Festival this weekend.
On August 23 and 24, 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.
“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, Healthy Communities Partnerships Manager.
In 2013, Safe Ride will be available 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 732-8294.
Healthy Communities Partnership is a collaborative organization comprised of dozens of community agencies. It is supported by the Abraham Lincoln Healthcare Foundation. Visit Healthy Communities Partnership on Facebook for more information.
