SafeRide is a free service that transports students, faculty, and staff to their residence or vehicle within a one-mile radius of campus. Riders may use this service once per evening and must present a valid U-M ID.
Upon calling SafeRide, users will be presented with three ride options based on their pick-up location:
Riders on campus will be directed to S.A.F.E.WALK (another ride service that can be used as an alternative to walking alone on campus at night). This program runs daily from 10:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. during the fall and winter semesters.
Riders at the Shapiro Undergraduate Library, the Duderstadt Center, or the Cancer Center will be directed to Ride Home. This program runs from 2:00 a.m. through 7:00 a.m. seven days a week.
