UAH Offers Safe Ride Home To Students Out On Weekends

UAH Story

The University of Alabama-Huntsville now offers a safe ride back to campus for students out drinking on the weekend.

Regina Hyatt, UAH Dean of Students, says the SafeRide program is meant as a safety net, not an excuse for students to be irresponsible.

“We want students to work within their peer groups to find a designated driver or go with people they feel comfortable with. It`s really for an emergency situation,” said Hyatt.

The SafeRide service runs from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m. Thursday through Saturday. The university has a contract with a local  cab company that will pick up students within a 10 mile radius of the school, as long as they show their student identification card.

Students can only use the program three times each semester.
