SAFE Ride Cards/SAFE Ride App

The Coalition’s Parent Committee teamed up with Student Lifeline, a local organization that works to reduce the risks of underage drinking and driving. Together, they have gained support for the distribution of Student Lifeline cards, providing free cab rides for teens who need to get home safe when in a high risk situation. Student Lifeline also provide Emergency Rides to battered and abused women and children to shelters, threatening date avoidance, vehicular breakdown/accident rides, etc. Over 4 million students have been supplied with the Student Lifeline Card Program. In 2016 The SAFE Glen Cove Youth Committee and The Glen Cove After 3 program teamed up to develop a SAFE Ride App that allows students to access SAFE Rides off their android and ios devices by downloading Explore Glen Cove. SAFE Ride Cards continue to be distributed at all school and community events.
