Parking and Transportation Services to Manage Safety Escort Shuttle Services Beginning July 1
Effective July 1, Parking and Transportation Services staff and drivers will assume responsibility and oversight of the University’s Safety Escort Shuttle Services program. The change is in response to recommendations provided to the University by Loretta Lynch in her comprehensive review of the Department of Public Safety (DPS), completed earlier this year. Among the 23 recommendations provided by Lynch and her team was a suggestion to remove the safety escort shuttle program from the portfolio of services offered by DPS.
Under the administration of Parking and Transportation Services, the program will provide shuttle services every night between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. The services offered remain a secondary resource to other established transportation methods, including the ‘Cuse Trolley and Centro buses. The shuttle escorts do not operate to areas covered by Centro buses during their hours of operation.
Members of the campus community can access the safety escort shuttle by calling 315.443.7433 (RIDE).
