Bannatyne Campus Safe Ride Program

Security Services at the University of Manitoba has recently announced that it is expanding its Safe Walk initiative to include a Safe Ride component.  Safe Ride is a service provided to members of the University community as a safe, and free alternative to walking alone after dark.  The Safe Ride program will operate daily (Monday-Friday) until 12:00am.  For the Safe Ride, Security Services will pick up a student, faculty or staff member on campus and deliver that person to their vehicle within our Safe Ride boundaries.
