SafeRide is a program administered by the University Police Department. The program's purpose is to provide a safe passage for students who would otherwise have to walk alone at night. Please visit the University of Virginia Police Department's website for more information about the program, including service hours, service area, and how to schedule a SafeRide.
Getting around campus
Students at UVA have several transportation options available to them. The University Transit Service (UTS) and Charlottesville Area Transit (CAT) form a network of bus routes that cover virtually all areas of Grounds and the City of Charlottesville. Students can ride any UTS or CAT bus for free with a valid UVA ID.
University policy prohibits first year students from having vehicles on-grounds during their first academic year.
