Parking & Transit Office

SafeRide/SafeBus Committee

The student members of the Transit Commission make any decisions regarding SafeRide and SafeBus services.  Operational decisions — those affecting day to day service — are considered final and are implemented as directed by Parking & Transit staff. Policy decisions are forwarded to the Provost for approval before implementation.

For information about Transit Commission members, upcoming meetings, and past minutes, please visit the Transit Commission page on the KU on Wheels portion of our websites.
