Rules of the Road

  • CU NightRide only operates within Boulder city limits.
  • Service must be requested through the CU NightRide app.
  • In an effort to maintain efficiency, drivers will wait five minutes for your group. If you miss your ride, your ride will be canceled and you must request a new one.
  • CU NightRide reserves the right to refuse to escort individuals who act in an unsafe manner, exploit the service or harass personnel or their escorts. Acting in an unsafe manner includes, but is not limited to, refusing to follow an driver’s safety instructions (i.e. not wearing a seat belt), possession of a weapon, or exhibiting violent or threatening behavior. In the event of refusal of service, our staff will make other safe transportation suggestions. If a person is refused service, they may be banned from future use of the service and may face other disciplinary actions from CU.
