Colorado College Alternative Transportation (CCAT) Service
Colorado College provides a safe ride service for the immediate campus vicinity. The service is student-run and available to all campus community members free of charge.
We encourage all members of the campus community to use common sense and practice good personal safety techniques at all times. Students and employees alike are encouraged to walk in groups of three or more, especially during the hours of darkness. However, when this is not possible, please use the College’s Safe Ride Service. Colorado College community members may call the Safe Ride Service and receive an escort up to 5 blocks away from campus.
On Saturdays during the block, from 11am- 2pm, Safe Ride can transport students to local grocery stores. Then at 2pm, a special Safe Ride shuttle provides a round trip to the Asian Pacific Market. In order to take advantage of this ride, meet at the Campus Safety Office promptly at 2 pm. Spaces are limited, so arrive early!
Safe Ride personnel are trained on escorting, personal safety and personal accountability. The Safe Ride vehicles maintain radio communication with the Campus Safety office, allowing them to access to emergency response services if needed. They also report any physical problems that may exist in our campus contributing to safety or Campus Safety problems (i.e. untrimmed hedges, lights that are out or misplaced, broken windows, propped open doors, etc.) to the attention of Campus Campus Safety. To contact the Safe Ride Service call extension 6340 or Campus Safety Dispatch at extension 6707. Provide the Service with your name, current location, where you wish to go and a contact number. Please remain in the building lobby or your car until the arrival of the Safe Ride vehicle.
Safe Ride hours of operation:
Sunday through Thursday from 8 pm to 1 am, and Friday and Saturday from 9 pm to 2 am.
