Established in 2004, the Student Alcohol Policy implemented the OU SafeRide program to discourage drinking and driving. The program provides safe, no-cost transportation for OU students within the designated Norman zone from 10:00 PM to 3:00 AM every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of the program calendar.
As of August 2023, SafeRide has partnered with the City of Norman's micro-transit service, Norman On-Demand. OU students can access the benefits of both the Norman On-Demand service and the OU SafeRide program by downloading the Norman On-Demand app and creating their account using their ou.edu email address. For more information about about the two programs, please see the below FAQ section.
SafeRide is a Student Government Association (SGA) supported program.
