FREE TAXI RIDES HOME

Happy Cab is excited to again be the only provider of the 475-RIDE program provided to UNL Students.  Here are the brief rules of this program and the dates and hours it is available.

  1. When booking your taxi you must either use our APP with the promo code: 475RIDE or call us at 402-202-2222 and ask for the 475 Ride program.
    • You can hail any cab you see vacant and ride as well.  You will need to provide the driver your UNL Student ID upon starting the ride.
  2. NO STOPS.  The driver can only take you on a direct route to your registered University address, if you require a stop the ride WILL NOT be paid for by the program.
  3. All Rides must originate and end within the city limits of Lincoln NE.
  4. At least one rider must have a valid UNL Student ID.  The driver will ask you to provide this as we are required to collect this information.

DISCLAIMER FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF NEBRAKSA

While our first priority is to provide a safe ride home for students who are in immediate need, it is our expectation that you act in accordance with the guidelines* of the program.  By doing so, you will help maintain the availability of 475-RIDE for students in need.

Guidelines:

  1. The UNL student must provide the dispatcher with valid ID number at time of call and present NCard to the driver.
  2. The UNL student must request transportation only to their official and registered residence.  This means that the student must have their preferred Lincoln home address registered with the university.
  3. The UNL student must call to cancel a cab if the need for the cab no longer exists. Any student failing to cancel a ride and is marked as a “no show” will receive one warning before being moved to the unfunded list.
  4. The UNL student may only use the service in unexpected or emergency situations, not for regular transportation purposes.
