Ohio Wesleyan’s Safe Ride Program provides free shuttle rides on one of two fixed circulator routes that reaches each pre-set stop approximately every 30 minutes. Follow us on Snapchat for our latest location.*

Safe Ride runs only when classes are in session, and service times may vary daily. The shuttle service begins no earlier than 7 p.m. and runs no later than 2 a.m. There is no Safe Ride service if Delaware County is under a Level 1, 2 or 3 winter weather advisory.

About Safe Ride

The Safe Ride Program is provided by the OWU Department of Public Safety to transport members of the campus community and their guests to and from pre-set locations, including remote parking lots and residential and academic buildings.

Please do not call Public Safety to schedule rides or determine how soon the van will reach a particular stop. This is a circulator service that travels a fixed path; the program is unable to provide rides upon request. When in service, the student-driven van should arrive at each scheduled stop at least once every 30 minutes.

Safe Ride Snapchat Account

* The Safe Ride Snapchat account is used only by our Safe Ride shuttle drivers, who are your fellow classmates. They will use the app to Snap the current and next stop on the circulator route. We encourage you to follow us on Snapchat but to block us from seeing your Snapchat stories by following the steps outlined via this Google Form accessible only by members of the OWU community.

Drivers Wanted

If you are an Ohio Wesleyan student with a valid driver’s license and a good driving record, you are invited to apply to become a Safe Ride driver. The position pays minimum wage, and the van service operates only when classes are in session. All shifts are staffed by two student-drivers.

Share Your Feedback

Public Safety is interested in your feedback about the Safe Ride Program as we seek to determine its value to the OWU community and whether the van is stopping at the right destinations.

To share feedback, please email Christopher Mickens, Assistant Director, at crmickens@owu.edu.
