A common theme that connects SafeRide’s Core Values is Diversity & Inclusion. SafeRide is committed to maintaining and promoting diversity within our program. Diversity and Inclusion are not boxes to be checked, in this way SafeRide seeks to continually improve our operations in order to serve students from all backgrounds. SafeRide is dedicated to consistently improving our work environment to create a culture where all students feel welcomed, safe, and challenge one another to grow in their understanding of a diverse world. SafeRide recognizes that diversity in identities, backgrounds, and points of view helps our program grow.
ASOSU SafeRide was established in 1988 as a sexual assault prevention service. It was started by women for women, meaning that drivers and riders had to identify as women. Around 2003-2004, ASOSU Student Government voted to open up the service for all OSU students regardless of how they identify. That also resulted in staffing being open to any student.
Service was facilitated by riders calling into the phone dispatch line to request a ride and the dispatcher radioing to assign the rides.
In Fall 2018, ASOSU SafeRide dedicated unused funding to purchase a new wheelchair accessible vehicle through OSU Motor Pool to better serve our community. The van was implemented in November 2018 and resulted in roughly a 300% increase in accessible rides.
