Safe Ride

In accordance with the Case Western Reserve University commitment to sustaining campus safety, the CWRU Department of Police and Security has implemented the Safe Ride program. Safe Ride will provide transportation across campus, as well as University Circle, between the hours of 7 p.m. and 3 a.m. daily. Anyone with a valid CWRU ID can use this service and will be transported in a specially marked security van within the destination boundaries noted on the service map (refer to guide in How To section). Additionally, Safe Ride can provide a lift equipped vehicle for anyone that may need these specific transportation requirements.

The CWRU Safe Ride program uses a computerized dispatch tool to improve pick-up and drop-off efficiency. The user can now schedule rides automatically without having to wait for an available dispatcher to setup the transportation run. Previous trip routes are saved and the last route travelled will auto-populate each time a new ride is requested. The Safe Ride system also allows the user to track the driver's status and location.

The Safe Ride system can be accessed from the internet and by smartphone at the following URL: Users can also schedule a ride request or speak directly with a dispatcher by dialing the Interactive Voice Response System (IVRS) at 216.368.3000.
