Safe Ride is a student-run program that provides free, safe transportation to Washington College students on campus and throughout Chestertown.



The Safe Ride program at Washington College is a free and relatively confidential service for students run by your fellow peers. Every night Safe Ride provides students with a safe alternative way to get back to campus without having to walk or drive themselves. Safe Ride protects Washington College students from potential physical or verbal harassment from non-students. The program has also shown a reduction in the complaints from the town, since students are no longer trespassing on private property as they travel through Chestertown. This program has facilitated a more cordial relationship between the college and the town as it continues to grow. 


Safe Ride was founded in 2006 to provide a safe and relatively confidential transportation system for students Thursday through Saturday. In 2013, Safe Ride and the Shoremen Shuttle merged, resulting in the expansion of Safe Ride’s hours to every day of the week.
