Safe Rides


​Safe Rides is Operating on a Set Route !

After 12 years of operating as an "on-demand" system, Safe Rides has transitioned to a set route system.  We believe this will greatly improve the efficiency of the program, and get people around much quicker.

- The program will operate from 8pm to 2am each day when classes are in session.
- Vans will travel a set route, stopping at 12 locations around campus.  These locations have been determined based on previous year's call volume.
- Vans will stop at each location every 15 to 25 minutes.
- Vans will continue to operate only on campus property.
- Vans will not stop anywhere but the designated stops.
- Calling Safe Rides or the Police Department will NOT expedite arrival​ time.
- ​Open Food and Drinks are not allowed in the Safe Rides vans.  

After using the Safe Rides service please take our short survey !
