Then-senior Tanner Smith drives Jan. 16, 2019, for the then-IU Safety Escort service, which has since been rebranded as IU Ride, through downtown Bloomington. IU Ride services will be returning this semester for students.

IU Ride, a nighttime transportation service available to students and employees, will resume Feb. 7 after a break since Nov. 20, 2020. The campus E Route buses will also add a stop at the IU Regional Academic Health Center starting Feb. 8, according to an IU press release.

IU Ride’s hours are from 8 p.m. to 1:45 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and 8 p.m. to 3 a.m. Friday and Saturday, according to the press release. All riders must wear a mask during the ride to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Students and employees can request a ride from IU Ride through the TransLoc app as long as they are within Bloomington city limits, according to the press release. There will be a driver and navigator in a minivan with an IU logo on the side. The van can hold up to two passengers.

The IU Campus Bus Service has extended the E Route by adding a new stop at the IU Regional Academic Health Center, but the route will still connect with the rest of campus, according to the press release. The IU Campus Bus Service requires passengers to wear a mask, and buses have been operating at half capacity, according to another IU press release.
