Wait! Before You Call...
Service does not operate during most holidays or school breaks; please see the Transit service calendar for any changes to normal service hours. A valid ECU 1 Card is required to ride; only one guest is allowed per valid 1 Card. Vans are only permitted to wait up to three minutes before canceling your pick up as a no show. Dispatchers answer phone calls on a first come, first serve basis and cannot schedule rides in advance.

How to Ride
Getting around with SafeRide is easy. Here's how it works:

  1. When you need to get picked up, dial 252-328-RIDE (7433).

  2. Be ready to give your name, pick up location and drop off location. We need this information for everyone who is riding, including guests.

  3. You will be given an approximate wait time; be sure to get to your pick up location a few minutes early and wait where you're visible to the driver.

  4. Have your ECU 1 Card ready! Once the van arrives, show it to the radio operator (passenger side) before boarding.
