Walking and Riding Safety Escort Program
***Due to Spring Break, SafeRide/SafeWalk will not be available from Friday, March 17th through Saturday, March 24th. Service will resume on Sunday, March 25th at 8:30pm.***
To promote a safe and secure campus environment, the UW-Eau Claire Police Department, in partnership with Housing and Residence Life, is offering a walking and riding safety escort program for all UW-Eau Claire students, faculty and staff.
The SafeRide / SafeWalk program was developed by students for all Blugolds. The program is staffed with students, who are known as Campus Safety Officers (CSO). They are identifiable by their CSO yellow traffic vests.
- A valid Blugold ID Card must be presented at the time of the service
- All escorts must either begin or end at a campus building or on campus property
- Face masks must be worn at all times while riding in any SafeRide vehicle
- Occupancy limits will be displayed on all SafeRide vehicles based on current recommendations of the local health department
Times of Operation:
The SafeWalk / SafeRide service will operate 7 days a week from 8:30 p.m. - 1:30 a.m. while classes are in session.
