Safe Ride’s goal is to help reduce DUI incidents and
encourage safe transportation by providing students financial
reimbursement for rideshare trips. Sac State students can request
up to $40 cash back (until funds last) per
semester for rides taken from rideshare services, taxis, and
public transportation. For Spring 2022, the
Safe Rides program temporarily allows students to claim cash back
for SMOG checks, and vehicle safety inspection fees.
ASI is not liable for any incidents associated with the rides or
services performed on your vehicle. Students are taking
rides and using vehicle inspection services at their own
risk. ASI does not guarantee reimbursements for all rides, SMOG
checks or vehicle services. Requests must have proper
documentation and will only be reimbursed until the max amount of
allotted funds per semester is reached. If you have any questions please reach out to
Thank you for your interest in the Safe Rides. We are no
longer accepting cash back requests for the Fall 2021 semester.
Safe Rides will resume accepting requests at the start of the
upcoming spring semester.
