The mission of Safe Ride is to save lives, prevent injuries, protect neighborhoods from late night vandalism, and keep impaired drivers off the road by offering SDSU students, Brookings community members, and visitors a safe transportation alternative.The Safe Ride Home program continues to grow. In the 2014-2015 school year, Safe Ride Home transported 16,224 riders.

Safe Ride operates for approximately 31 weeks during the academic year (September-May). The program currently operates two routes (blue route and yellow route) on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday evening from 9pm until 2:30am and each route is completed approximately every 25 minutes.
