Raider Ride Shuttle & Blue Light Phones

Raider Ride (742-RIDE or 742-7433)

Evening Transportation Service

From 6 p.m. to 2:45 a.m. seven days a week during the semester, Transportation & Parking Services provides a night shuttle service to students across campus.

Request a ride during service hours through the TapRide app (Google Play, App Store). A valid student ID is needed. Raider Ride uses white 10-passenger vans for service. Raider Ride operates from the night before the first day of class through the Sunday morning following commencement during the fall, spring, and summer II semesters. For summer I, Raider Ride operates from the first day of class through the morning following the last final. Raider Ride does not operate on Texas Tech holidays.

Blue Light Phones

Safety on campus is something the SGA feels must be addressed before a problem, not afterward. For this reason, Student Government has partnered with the Police Department and other entities on campus to implement the Blue Light Phones. All of these phones immediately dial the TTU Police Department when the receiver is picked up. More Information on these phones and other similar services is available in the SGA office. A map of Blue Light Phone locations can be found here.
