Proud Sponsor Of The Safe Ride Home

Holiday Safe Ride Home

Hauptman, O’Brien, Wolf & Lathrop is proud to have sponsored the Holiday Safe Ride Home program since its inception in December 1990. The premise is simple: Persons who attend a holiday party and find themselves too intoxicated to drive safely can call Happy Cab for a ride home. The tab will be picked up by Hauptman, O’Brien, Wolf & Lathrop.

This past holiday season, Hauptman, O’Brien, Wolf & Lathrop provided cab rides home for roughly 3,200 community members, helping to ensure that our neighbors had a safe and happy holiday.

If you find yourself needing a safe ride this holiday season, call Happy Cab at 402-292-2222, between the hours of 8:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m., December 11th through New Year’s Eve. And have a safe and happy holiday on Hauptman, O’Brien, Wolf & Lathrop.

Just as a reminder–cab rides can only originate and end within Douglas and Sarpy Counties (not Pottawattamie County/Council Bluffs, Iowa) and passengers will only be taken home, not another event location, after being picked up by Happy Cab from their holiday event.   Also, the caller must advise the call center at the time they request cab service that they would like the Hauptman, O’Brien Safe Ride Home in order for Happy Cab to bill the charge properly. 

St. Patrick’s Day Safe Ride Home

St. Patrick’s Day is another occasion where our community members attend numerous parties to celebrate the holiday. In keeping with tradition, and to keep St. Patrick’s Day celebrants safe, Hauptman, O’Brien, Wolf & Lathrop pays for taxi rides from 12:00 p.m. on March 17 until 2:00 a.m. March 18. Free taxi rides are available to people who call Happy Cab at 402-292-2222 from a bar or tavern and are taken home.

St. Patrick’s Day 2005, Hauptman, O’Brien, Wolf & Lathrop provided cab rides home for roughly 244 community members, helping to ensure that our neighbors had a safe and enjoyable St. Patrick’s Day.


“Congratulations on another Safe Ride Home. I noticed you saved 3,200 people this year – Wow!!! Unbelievable – but fantastic. I remember where this program began. You are truly helping to make our streets safer!! Thank you.”

“My daughter was able to make it home safely a couple of nights ago thanks to the Safe Ride Home Program. Thank you so much for underwriting such a wonderful, life saving program.”

“Thanks for offering such a valuable service to the community! As a business owner, it’s good to know that programs like this exist in Omaha. When the holidays approach each year, I make sure all of our employees know about your safe ride program.”

“Each year, we host a big holiday party in our home, and I always tell our guests about the safe ride home program. It eases my mind to know this option exists for our friends and family to get home safely. Thank you for providing such a life-saving program!”

“With all of the holiday parties my children attend, I know their budgets get tight and they may be tempted to drive when they shouldn’t. Last year, I asked them to program the safe ride home number into their cell phones to call if they needed to. Thanks for giving this mother some added peace of mind.”

“Thank you for making the holiday season in Omaha a little bit safer. I may not drink and drive, but I still worry about those who do. If the safe ride home program leads to even one less drunk driver on the road, it’s worth it in my book.”
