Safe Ride Program

Since the start of the 2015 academic year, Drake  has been operating its own evening bus system.  The bus runs throughout both the Fall and Spring semesters, and is available to all members of the University community free of charge.

Safe Ride Bus - Hours of Operation

Sunday – Wednesday: 8:00 pm – 1:00 am

Thursday – Saturday: 8:00 pm – 2:30 am 

The bus operates between 24th -34th street from Cottage Grove to College Ave.   Every corner is a bus stop for pick-up along with the cut out in front of the Library on University and the Olmsted Lot in front of the Olmsted Center.  You can always see where the buses are by clicking here.

If you have a question during bus hours simply call Drake Public Safety at 515-271-2222.

As an additional note - Drake students are also allowed to ride the City of Des Moines DART bus system free of charge with their Drake ID card.  Feel free to utilize this service for areas outside of the Safe Ride routes.
