Take a free ride with CAB

Have you ever been stuck without a car, knowing you need to go somewhere?  Many students on campus face this problem daily, and the student government is trying to provide a solution.

The student government has introduced the Create a Bridge Program this semester to give rides to students without transportation to the destination of their choice on Sundays between 2 and 6 p.m.

Lukas Holoubek, 21, a senior from David City majoring in business administration gets it and is behind the program begun this fall. “When Cade Craig and Nate Summerfield were running for student government, some of their goals involved reaching out to the international students— because they recognized some of the students were having a tough time getting around Kearney.”

Holoubek said he understands from his own experience. “Having experienced studying abroad, I underestimated how finding transportation can be problematic and that’s amplified in the United States where public transportation is even rarer,” Holoubek said. 

“The best part of the CAB Program is that it promotes interaction with the international community and allows you to make all the contacts you would studying abroad,” Holoubek said. And, although the Create a Bridge Program was originally aimed toward international students, it offers rides to any student on campus, he said.

The CAB Program operates with the help of volunteers who offer the rides to the students. “So far the volunteers have been members of the Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity and the student government, but we hope to get volunteers from other organizations as the CAB Program grows,” Holoubek said. Volunteers need to have a valid driver’s license, along with your registration and proof of insurance on their vehicle.

Call 308-865-8393 on Sundays between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. to use the CAB Program.

Individuals hoping to volunteer can contact the CAB Program can also an e-mail to unkcabprogram@gmail.com.
