SafeRide

SafeRide Daytime Disability Transportation Service

► To reliably accommodate the population SafeRide is designed to serve, disability transport requests must be prearranged through Parking and Transportation Services (PaTS).

► SafeRide is available to those who need assistance on a temporary (recent surgery, lower limb injuries, etc.) or long-tem basis (visual impairments, chronic medical illnesses that impact stamina, etc.).

► To qualify for SafeRide, students, faculty, and staff must submit the SafeRide medical verification form to the Office of Disability Services for review. Upon review, DS staff verifies the documentation and sends email confirmation of eligibility to PaTS and to the student, faculty or staff member requesting SafeRide. Requests are processed and transport is scheduled quickly, usually within 24 hours.

SafeRide Weekday Accessibility Transportation: Mon - Fri, 7:30 am to 5:30 pm

During daytime hours, SafeRide provides scheduled and on-demand disability transport throughout the inner core of campus for those who are registered for the service. SafeRide stops at specific, accessible stop locations throughout the inner campus core. 

Feature for Persons who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing

Anyone who is deaf or hard of hearing who also requires SafeRide transportation can email a SafeRide request to Deafsaferide@uncc.edu. A sound is attached to the email when SafeRide dispatch receives it in order to expedite response and schedule the pick-up. Note that the Daytime SafeRide pick-up areas, or Stops, are the same for all passengers.
