Safe Rides and Safe Walk Program
About the Programs:
Safe Rides and Safe Walks are safety programs offered by Public Safety. These programs provide free transportation or safety walks to and from Millikin University owned or affiliated properties. This service is not available for those living off-campus. Students, faculty and staff can request a safe ride by calling 8888 or 3826. Safe Rides are available from dusk to dawn while classes are in session on a first come first served basis. If you call for a safe ride you must be at the door waiting for the safe ride vehicle when it arrived. If the safe ride vehicle comes to your location and you are not present the driver will wait a maximum of three minutes. In fairness to other requesting parties they will then go to the next call. You will then need to call back and request a safe ride again.
Public Safety also provides Safe Walks. Safe walks are provided by Security Officers for short distances on campus.
If there is inclement weather such as snow storms, low wind chills, rain etc. there may be a wait time for safe rides.
Please keep in mind the intent of this program is to ensure students, faculty, and staff safety.
