uRide 24-5Please Note. The trial period for this program expired on December 16, 2013
PTS and Student Government are rolling out a pilot program called 24-5 that gets university students home from campus after midnight. The program is designed to give late-night Longhorns a safe and convenient way to get home and is geared around Perry-Castañeda Library (PCL).
uRide, an Austin-based start up, will provide rides home from the PCL to students between the hours of 12 a.m. and 3 a.m., Sunday through Thursday. Rides each evening will be provided at no charge, thanks to sponsorship by PTS.
