University Transportation Services provide safe, free transportation to all students, faculty, administrators, alumni and staff through the Department of Public Safety. Our bus system operates two scheduled routes which connect the Washington Square campus with locations that are beyond a reasonable walking distance from the center of campus. The system generally operates during the fall and spring semesters when classes are in session from 7 a.m. to 12 midnight on weekdays and 10 a.m. to 12 midnight on weekends.
Free overnight Safe Ride Van Service is provided 7 Days Per Week when fall and spring semester classes are in session. Safe Ride is a shared ride, on demand van service, intended to provide safe overnight transportation to and from NYU facilities. Passengers who require transportation during these hours should call the Department of Public Safety at 212-992-VANS (212-992-8267) to request that a Safe Ride van, operated by Academy Bus, would be dispatched. The average wait time for a van is 15 minutes, but wait times during busy periods may be longer.
A valid NYU ID is required to board any campus transportation vehicle, and it must be presented to the bus or van operator when boarding. Bus passes are available for guests from residence hall managers or the Department of Public Safety Office at 14 Washington Place.
Please do not eat or drink while on board any vehicle. Vehicles will pick up and drop off passengers at designated stops only. Drivers are not permitted to allow passengers to board after the door has been closed at a bus stop. This rule is for our passengersŐ safety.
Scheduled times may be printed from the Department of Public Safety website at www.nyu.edu/ride. Departure as listed within all timetables are approximate, and due to New York City traffic congestion, your trip may be delayed. Please plan your trip accordingly and allow for sufficient time when riding University Transportation vehicles. Your patience is appreciated when delays occur, and University Transportation apologizes for any such delays that you may encounter.
