Welcome to Duck Rides, the new home of essential nighttime transportation services for UO students and employees for Fall Term 2020. Our service will launch on September 29.

Duck Rides is a new partnership between UO’s existing student ride services (Safe Ride, Designated Driver Shuttle, and Campus Shuttle) and it will replace them as an adjustment to COVID-19.

Duck Rides is committed to providing friendly and necessary transportation to students in a safe manner during COVID-19, thanks to extensive new health and safety measures.

We will be offering more limited operating hours and ridership this fall. We also will be promoting social responsibility by not taking students to locations of known parties or social gatherings, or to bars and restaurants.

Mission Statement:

Our ride services have been reorganized to comply with CDC (Center of Disease Control) recommendations and prioritizing access to essential services. In accordance with social distancing standards (6 feet between individuals), we will provide safe transportation only to and from essential locations for the University of Oregon’s students, staff and faculty. Due to the social distancing guidelines, our ridership capacity has been reduced to ensure the safety of our riders along with our staff. The number one priority of Duck Rides is the safety of our patrons by providing safe, friendly, and necessary rides.

Hours of Operation:

5:30pm – 10:30pm / 7 days per week
