SafeRide

Daytime Disability Paratransit 

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. In order to reliably accommodate the population SafeRide is designed to serve, daytime disability transport requests must be prearranged. Requests are processed and transport is scheduled quickly, usually within 24 hours. 
 
SafeRide vehicles will get as close as possible to an accessible entrance, but will drive and park only on paved pathways.
