Hours of Operation:

Night Rides is exactly what is sounds like. Well, not exactly. Have to lug a camera across campus? Twisted your ankle playing Rugby? Call Night Rides! We’ll come and pick you up and take you where you need to go on campus, free of charge..

How to use Night Rides:

1. Call Security at (845) 752 4653, and request a Night Ride. Be prepared to give them your name, number and where you currently are on campus.

2. Wait at the road.  SRG Night Rides cannot leave Bard’s streets or parking lots.

3.  Greet your driver and hop in.  Remember, Night Ride drivers cannot take more than 1 passenger per trip.

4. Ride off into the night, or to DTR. You do you.

How it works:

Any Bard student can use this service. We have one Night Ride Driver that has the keys for the night, and answers all calls. Please be patient, as you might not be the only call that night. Night Rides cannot accept calls after 12:45 AM, and the service ends at 1:00 AM.
