Attention all UT students: You can now get free rides home thanks to UT’s partnership with Lyft!




Early September, UT Parking and Transportation Services announced the start of a new program called SURE Ride. It offers university faculty members, staff members and students a late-night Lyft home from the main campus. The program was designed to give Longhorns a free, safe ride home.


The users must request the ride from campus to residential locations ONLY, this includes homes, apartments, condos and private off-campus dorms. The areas benefiting from this service are by the following shuttle bus routes:


West Campus (642), Lake Austin (663), Crossing Place (670), North Riverside (671), Lake Shore (672), Red River (653), Intramural Fields (656) and Far West (661.) You can click on the bus route numbers for a detailed map of the routes to compare them to the location of your home.


UT Parking and Transportation says the SURE Ride promo has been applied if the price is crossed out.


Lyft will provide the free service seven nights a week between the hours of 11 p.m. and 4 a.m. Make sure to request the ride as a “Lyft Line” to have the promo apply to your ride! Any additional tips given to the driver will be charged to the payment method associated with your Lyft account.


This is what the promo should look like on your payment details tab.
