With the Spring 2010 semester underway, the Northern Iowa Student Government is pleased to announce its Fall 2009 ridership for the Weekend SafeRide. Overall numbers reveal an increase in 1,024 participants from Fall 2008 to Fall 2009.

A graph attached shows the increase from month to month.

The SafeRide provides a safe alternative form of transportation for UNI students and community members every weekend during the academic year (including winter and spring breaks). The program promotes responsibility for all members of the Cedar Falls community.

In April 2009, NISG was honored with the Commissioner’s Special Award for Traffic Safety from the Iowa Department of Public Safety. This annual award recognizes outstanding traffic safety contributions based on a commitment to traffic safety and service provided beyond routine duties.

The SafeRide route runs from 9:55 p.m. to 2:20 a.m. and is sponsored by UNI Public Safety. For more information on the SafeRide, a PDF download of its schedule and other NISG resources, visit
