Right Rides in NYC believes that getting home safely is a right for everyone and shouldn’t be considered a luxury. The RightRides program offers women, LGBTQ and gender nonconforming individuals a free, late-night ride home to ensure their safe commute to or through high-risk areas of New York.
RightRides is also a founding member of New Yorkers for Safe Transit, the only coalition in NYC dedicated to raising awareness of gender-based violence in mass transit, and working to end it through community organizing, education, advocacy and policy change work.
RightRides offers women, LGBTQ and gender queer individuals a free, safe, late night ride home in the NYC area on Friday and Saturday nights from 11:59 PM – 3 AM, (early Saturday or Sunday morning) in up to 45 NYC neighborhoods across four NYC boroughs. To call for a ride, the dispatch number is (888) 215-SAFE (7233).
