SafeRide is a free rideshare service for University of Arizona affiliates. Since 1981, SafeRide has provided a nighttime alternative to walking alone on campus and in the Tucson community.  It is managed and operated entirely by students under the sponsorship of the Associated Students of the University of Arizona (ASUA).  As an academic service, SafeRide’s mission is to serve those going to and from campus, while also providing a friendly and official presence on the streets at night.

Call us at 520-621-7233!
