Safe Ride

Safe Ride

Safe Ride offers undergraduate students safe and reliable transportation between River Campus properties and residence halls. The 15-passenger van operates after shuttle hours and can usually arrive within minutes. Safe Ride runs from 11 p.m. to 4 a.m. every day during the academic year (does not run during breaks or University holidays).

As of September 30, 2023, the TapRide app will no longer be used as the University’s method for requesting on-demand rides through the Safe Ride system. A new ride app, which integrates with a new GPS app for the University shuttle system, will launch soon.

To request a ride until the new app launches:

  • call the Safe Ride dispatcher at (585) 276-RIDE (7433).
  • the dispatcher will relay the ride information to the driver

This service is provided by the Students’ Association Government in collaboration with the Department of Public Safety and the Department of Transportation and Logistics.
