Following the advisory by Student Services earlier this month encouraging students to utilize University transportation, a new SafeRide Zone map has been released by Public Safety.
The Zone map shows clearly where the SafeRide service goes and, importantly, where it does not go. The zone map is taken into consideration for re-zoning at the end of every school year. The new map was designed in accordance with off-campus student residencies and locations within a practical distance from the University, according to Linfante.
The goal of SafeRide is to provide a safe, dependable way of transportation to destinations that may not be specifically included on the course of the SHUfly. Linfante reported that the zone size has not grown since last year.
“To further increase the size of the zone would defeat its purpose,” he said. “Therefore, I don’t anticipate any further changes.”
Students are encouraged to plan accordingly with the boundaries of University transportation in order to travel safely. The boundaries extend to the following intersections: Scotland Road and Tremont Avenue, Tremont Avenue and Centre Street, Boyden Avenue and Parker Avenue, Parker Avenue and Academy Street. The route does not go beyond Academy Street.
The SafeRide transportation system starts at 5 p.m. on weekdays and 6 p.m. on weekends. It runs until 2:45 a.m. To arrange a ride, contact Public Safety at 973-761- 9300.
