UB Parking and Transportation Services operates a Safety Shuttle available to students who want a ride to within a 1.5 mile radius of the South Campus.
A Safety Shuttle is available to students, faculty and staff needing a ride to within a 1.5 mile radius of the South Campus. Operating nightly from 8:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. during the fall and spring semesters, this service replaces van transit previously offered through Sub-Board, Inc.
The service is reservation/on-demand based. Pick-ups can be made adjacent to any building on the South Campus.
To arrange for a pick-up, call the dispatcher at First Transit, Inc., 716-895-2402 and a shuttle will arrive to pick you up within 10-15 minutes.
