MADISON, Wis. — The University of Wisconsin-Madison SAFEride cab program ended its services this June and will not continue next school year due to budget cuts, The Daily Cardinal reported.

The service, which offered each student six free late-night cab rides per semester within the campus area, was funded entirely through mandatory student segregated fees. For the full story, click here.

Despite ending the SAFEride cab service, the University's SAFEwalk program, the free campus service that provides trained, two-person walking escorts for throughout the campus, will still be available. (Photo by Jeff Miller/UW-Madison)
