UI Police continue to operate Nite Ride for women

The UI Police Department is continuing to operate its Nite Ride Program, the UI’s safe means for late transportation service for women only. The phone number is 319-384-1111.

The programs offers women on campus a free, safe ride home. With a number of summer sessions, sports camps and the university community still being active in the summer months, the UI Department of Public Safety has continued the program even though a number of activities have been cancelled or postponed due to the flooding situation.

Nite Ride uses a light gold, 15-passenger van. By dialing 319-384-1111, callers are connected with the van driver, who can give a current location and an estimated pickup time.
