The mission of WOLF Ride: WOU’s Safe Ride program is to provide a complimentary and reliable shuttle service to students of Western Oregon University who would otherwise walk alone at night and risk their safety or possible assault. WOLF Ride provides a safer environment for all students by increasing public awareness of our services and the dangers of assault.
Announcements: Enjoy the summer. Service will start again on Friday, September 29, 2017. The delay is due to required vehicle repairs. WOU students coming into Salem on HUT Shuttle, Amtrak, or bus (Sept. 22, 23, or 24) may submit a ride request form . Deadline is Sept. 6, 2017. The cost is $10.
The WOLF Ride program is operated by the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs. Students can call 503.428.7238 during service hours to request a ride between the hours of 5:00pm and 12:00am, Monday through Sunday. Ride requests are taken on a first come, first served basis (there is no “route”). There is only one van. The WOLF Ride van is equipped with a wheelchair lift. If you call prior to operating hours or the driver cannot take your call, please leave a message stating the following:

- The time you would like to be picked up
- A number at which you can be reached (the driver will call to confirm your ride upon receipt of the message)
