Safety Escort & SafeRide

Here to get you home safely

Students need safe options getting home, particularly at night. IUSA is proud to support Safety Escort, a program dedicated to helping students make their way safely from one place to the next.

Safety Escort runs seven days a week from 8 p.m.–1:45 a.m. Students can use this service up to twice in one night and can be picked up and dropped off both on and off campus. For access to the ride requesting service, go to the mobile TapRide site here.


IUSA funded and operated a pilot program in the fall of 2013 that extended Safety Escort hours later on weekends and expanded the program to pick up intoxicated students. In addition, SafeRide picked up students and dropped them off both on and off campus. After a successful run, recommendations were made to Safety Escort to expand services. These changes have helped adapt Safety Escort services to fit the needs of today's students.
