In order to reliably accommodate the population SafeRide is designed to serve, disability transport requests must be prearranged. Requests are processed and transport is scheduled quickly, usually within 24 hours.
SafeRide Weekday Accessibility Transportation:
Monday – Friday, 7:30 am to 5:30 pm
During daytime hours, SafeRide provides scheduled and on-demand disability transport throughout the inner core of campus for those with mobility impairments who are registered for the service.
SafeRide is also available to those who need assistance on a temporary basis (such as recent surgery, lower limb injuries, visual impairments, or chronic diseases that impact stamina). This is also arranged through the Office of Disability Services, Fretwell 230 (704-687-0040). After completion of the required form, Disability Services will verify and send email confirmation of eligibility (usually processed within 24 hours or less).
Deaf persons who require Saferide may email their request to Deafsaferide@uncc.edu. A sound is attached to the email when SafeRide dispatch receives it to expedite response and schedule pick up.
University personnel who plan to bring visitors with the need for SafeRide are strongly urged to contact Parking and Transportation Services' SafeRide line in advance to secure services: 704-687-5636.
SafeRide vehicles will get as close as possible to an accessible entrance, but will drive and park only on paved pathways.
Seven days a week, 6:00 pm to 2:00 am
SafeRide makes getting around campus safer, faster, and easier for everyone after dark, providing reliable, scheduled stops all around campus, about every 15 minutes.
SafeRide's evening safety transport has regular, marked pick-up stops and consistent scheduling. Three SafeRide vans will travel a fixed route from 6:00 pm to 2:00 am, seven days a week.
In order to make SafeRide Evening Service faster on weekends, vans will stop only if someone is waiting, Friday-Sunday nights.
