Introducing Free Rides From Campus With SURE Ride

Dear Faculty, Staff and Students,

Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) at The University of Texas at Austin is excited to announce a program called SURE Ride that offers university faculty members, staff members and students a Lyft home from the main campus. The program is designed to give late-night Longhorns a safe and convenient transportation option. Users who participate in the program will request a ride from campus and will be dropped off at residential locations only including: homes, apartments, condos and private dorms located off campus.

Lyft, a rideshare company, will provide rides home from the main campus to faculty members, staff members and students between the hours of 11 p.m. and 4 a.m., seven nights a week at no charge, thanks to PTS.

Service begins Monday, Sept. 11, but you can sign up today!

If you would like to participate in the free SURE Ride program from PTS and Lyft, please opt in here: and you’ll receive an invitation.

Lyft rides will be provided to residential areas that are served by the following shuttle bus routes: West Campus (642), Lake Austin (663), Crossing Place (670), North Riverside (671), Lake Shore (672), Red River (653), Intramural Fields (656) and Far West (661).
