NITE RIDE covers areas of campus not serviced by shuttle-um evening routes. 

This additional Shuttle-UM service runs from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 a.m. when the university is open and services the immediate campus community. We provide rides to and from anywhere in the NITE Ride service area (shown on map below).
