Wait Times

It's hard to know exactly how long in advance you need to call in order to book a Safe Ride. Demand varies widely based on many outside factors, from campus events to weather to which day of the week it is. You can visit our Twitter or Facebook for updated wait times throughout each night to help you plan your ride. The best way to get a Safe Ride is by downloading and using the new TransLoc app - it will provide you with a continuously updated wait time once you have placed a ride.

An average wait for a Safe Ride is about 10 minutes. Wait times tend to be longer in general on weekends and during our busiest hours (between 10pm and midnight), so you should expect to wait 15-20 minutes under these circumstances.

During adverse weather conditions such as rain, snow, or extremely low temperatures wait times can be much longer. Please plan accordingly.
