James Madison University
Mission Statement: The SafeRides mission is designed to provide a safer community. SafeRides will provide a safe and reliable service within the Harrisonburg community by providing free rides to intoxicated students and/or to students who are rendered incapable of transportation due to other circumstances. SafeRides members will also work to prevent drunk driving through our efforts to educate and fundraise to help support our mission.
How we operate: Our program operates through student volunteers at JMU. Each semester we have applications and accept the best Cali-Blue dukes to be the newest members of SafeRides! Each member needs to work a minimum of 3 nights per semester, obtain 2 education points, and 1 "helper" point. An education point can be earned by helping with an event where the goal is expanding our reach in the community and educating about the dangers of drinking and driving. A "helper" point can be earned by assisting an executive member with a variety of different tasks (Membership drives, fundraisers, etc). In terms of operation nights, we operate on Friday and Saturday nights from 10pm - 3am. When a patron calls our office to order a ride, they are immediately placed on a waitlist & will be picked up by the next available car! Rides are free, confidential, and nonjudgemental! Since we began giving rides in 2007, we have given roughly 100,000 rides. Most recently in 2018, we were awarded the VA Governor's Transportation Award for Public Safety.
