Beginning tonight (Monday, Oct. 15) at 10 p.m., the UI Department of Public Safety will retire the NITE RIDE Gold bus, replacing it with a new TransConnect van.

Nite Ride TransConnect Van

This vehicle will allow the department to provide more express rides to students as the NITE RIDE service continues to evolve to meet student needs. 

In addition to the vehicle updates, the NITE RIDE request application now includes a feature that allows riders to see a map of where their vehicle is once their request has been accepted and assigned. 

NITE RIDE will continue to operate from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. 7 days a week. To request a ride, visit:
