Service suspended for summer quarter

NightRide shuttle service has suspended operations for summer quarter. This cautionary measure is in response to the coronavirus pandemic and the move to virtual instruction on the UW campus. Other UW shuttle services continue to operate, and we encourage you to follow the public health measures designed to reduce the spread of illness and viruses.

If you have concerns about nighttime safety, the following services are available:

  • Husky NightWalk: The UW Police Department provides uniformed security guards as walking escort from 6:30 p.m. to 2 a.m., seven days a week.
  • UW Medical Center-Montlake: Escorts for hospital employees and volunteers from the UWMC-Montlake main lobby entrance to university campus parking lots. 
  • SafeZone is an app that connects your mobile phone to the UW Police Department. It has call buttons for emergency, first aid and non-emergency help.

Transportation Services appreciates your understanding during this time. For more information about the University’s response to the novel coronavirus, visit UW’s coronavirus FAQ.
