Campus Safety is rolling out several  updates to its Nite Ride service in an effort to decrease wait times and expand safety services on campus.

Increased Staffing

Nite Ride – which is operated by the Security Services unit – has long been operated almost entirely by student security officers. Campus Safety has hired a full-time security officer to supplement these services and operate the Nite Ride bus, which carries up to 13 passengers at a time. This dedicated position will help reduce wait times by providing more consistent staffing during peak hours.

The position was made possible by funding from the Division of Student Life Athletics Alcohol fund (proceeds from alcohol sales at athletic events) and is one of the UI Harm Reduction Plan and Reimagining Campus Safety implementation strategies.
