Safe Ride program

The Safe Ride program consists of a dedicated van intended to safely transport CWRU students, faculty and staff around the University Circle area during the evening and nighttime hours. The program is designed to supplement other transport and escort services on campus such as the shuttle buses. The Safe Ride service is available from 7pm until 3am every day and can be accessed by calling (216) 368-3000. Be prepared to give your name, location and final destination. You can ask the dispatcher what the estimated time of arrival for the van might be.

The service area for the Safe Ride van goes from Wade Park Avenue to the north, Coltman Road to the east, East 101st Street to the west and to the intersections of Mayfield/Kenilworth and Cedar/Fairmount to the south. If you are ill or intoxicated please contact CWRU PD dispatch at (216) 368-3333 to get the assistance you need. The Safe Ride van is not intended to be a medical transport service


The Police Department offers an on-campus security escort service that is available 24 hours a day to all members of the University community.
