Safe Walk

Safe Walk is a public safety service available on campus 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. See the boundaries on the Safe Walk/Safe Ride Map. Please reach out at 410-706-6882 for more information.

Note: For the safety of our community, police and security officers must be able to quickly use their radios in the event of an emergency. For this reason, our officers are not able to assist with carrying bags or packages, pushing strollers, or performing other physical activities during a Safe Walk. We appreciate your understanding.

Safe Ride

Safe Ride is a police service (car or van) available from 7 a.m. to 1 a.m., 365 days a year. See boundaries on the Safe Walk/Safe Ride Map. Safe Ride is for UMB/UMMC students and employees only. All riders must be age 18+ and are required to have a UMB ID or UMMC ID. 

Your health and safety are our top priority. We have taken the following steps to ensure that our Safe Ride service is as safe as possible:

  • Protective barriers between driver and passenger
  • Safe Ride limited to one passenger at a time, or no more than two passengers from the same household
  • Drivers will wear N95 respirators that were professionally fitted
  • Drivers will disinfect all hard touch-point areas between each ride and at the start and end of each shift
  • Passengers will be required to acknowledge that they are not COVID-positive, are not experiencing symptoms, and have not been exposed to a COVID-positive person before requesting a Safe Ride.
  • Passengers will be required to wear a face covering at all times, in compliance with the UMB Face Covering Policy. Medical-grade masks will be provided for passengers who do not have a face covering.
