Student Safe Ride & Escort Shuttle Program

Students may request a Safe Ride at any time while on-campus.  The Safe Ride Shuttle is available to students, 24 hours a day, anytime they don’t feel safe walking by themselves. 

This service is not intended for groups larger than two.

Safe Rides are intended for no more than two students who need to travel between on-campus locations. During high-volume days and times, the safe ride shuttle driver may decline to transport any groups larger than two.

The Safe Ride Shuttle may also be used to travel, to and from off campus housing, for those students residing off-campus.

A valid Bates ID must be presented to the shuttle driver, upon entering the shuttle.  

The Safe Ride Shuttle WILL NOT transport students to or from bars or to off-campus parties.

Disorderly students will not be transported.

Food or alcohol are not allowed in the shuttle. 

The Safe Ride Shuttle reserves the right to refuse transport. 

Destinations outside the published routes or those that are beyond Lewiston/Auburn are NOT within our regular service area. THE BOBCAT EXPRESS DOES NOT PROVIDE TRANSPORTATION OUTSIDE THESE SERVICE AREAS.
