E-Driving is a 24/7 department that provides transportation for students in case of emergencies. Emergencies can be anything from spraining your ankle, to having a high fever – as long as there’s no need for an ambulance, but still an urgency. Emergency Driving can only be used if determined by Bard EMS, Health Services, or Athletic Training.

Hours of Operation:

Emergency Driving is 24 hours, 7 days a week. We also operate during Citizen Science and L&T.

How to use Emergency Driving:

Emergency Driving can only be called by Bard EMS, Health Services, and Athletic Training.

How it works:

Each Emergency Driver comes to Security at the start of their shift to pick up a cellphone, at either 10 am or 10 pm, and must stay on-campus for the full 12 hour shift. During that time, if EMS judges the situation to require an Emergency Driver, they are called and pick up the student in need and drive them to the medical facility they need.
