** Rideshare Notice to Students **

Students who choose to use transportation network companies are encouraged to become educated consumers of these services and to always exercise good judgment before entering a vehicle. If you notice inconsistencies with the driver or vehicle, or something makes you feel uncomfortable, do not enter the vehicle. When using one of these services, always notify a friend of the vehicle's description including make and model, but most importantly the license plate and driver's information.
