UCLA Safe Ride Blog_V2

Did you know that you can get free rides at night between campus buildings and to on-campus housing and nearby residential areas?

UCLA Safe Ride, previously known as the CSO Evening Van, provides secure, reliable evening transportation for all UCLA staff, faculty, students and visitors.

All you have to do is download the TapRide app through Google Play or the Apple Store, and request a van Monday through Thursday between 7 p.m. and 12 a.m. (excluding University holidays and breaks).

Operating under the the supervision of the UCLA Police Department, Safe Ride vans are driven by Community Service Officers (CSOs) who carry two-way radios that directly link to UCPD. UCLA Safe Ride is available during the fall, winter and spring quarters, and has wheelchair accessible vehicles available upon request.

Vans stop at designated stop locations only. Please note that stops are no longer automatic and rides will need to be requested through the TapRide mobile app.
