uRide logo

Safe Ride is a PTS and Student Government collaboration that gets university students home from the downtown entertainment district after midnight. The program is designed to give late-night Longhorns a safe and convenient way to get home. The downtown pickup location is at the southeast corner of San Jacinto and 8th Street. Riders will be dropped off at residential locations including: homes, apartments, condos, and dorms. At no time will riders be dropped off at other commercial locations.

uRide, an Austin-based start up, will provide rides home from the downtown to students between the hours of 11:59 p.m. and 3 a.m., Thursday through Saturday night. Rides each evening will be provided at no charge, thanks to sponsorship by Student Government.

The program runs from Thursday, August 27 through Sunday, December 13th.

Rides will be provided to the following residential areas:

  • Zip code 78741: East Riverside
  • Zip code 78705: West Campus
