The Safe Ride program has been initiated at Fort Riley for Soldiers and family members who reside on Fort Riley. The program is scheduled to begin July 10.
The program is intended to reduce the increase of accidents and fatalities related to substance-impaired or fatigued driving late in the evening and on the weekends.
The program will ensure Soldiers have a safe ride back to Fort Riley from the pick-up point near Willie’s Car Wash.
Units from the 1st Infantry Division will provide drivers for bus transportation that will be driven on a predetermined route with designated stops on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings (into Sunday morning) from 10 p.m. to 3:20 a.m.
The program is free to Soldiers and Family members with appropriate military identification.
The Safe Ride program will be operated for a 60-day period and then be evaluated.
