Other Ways to Travel


If you live on the Brown campus in an area not serviced by the shuttle and don’t want to walk home alone, use Safewalk. Safewalk is a program run by Brown students that provides point-to-point walking escorts.

Safewalk serves the center of campus; Brown Shuttle serves the perimeter of campus; and Brown onCall serves off-campus residents.

To request a Safewalk, call 401-863-1079, the Safewalk office, or simply request a Safewalk from one of the Safewalk teams patrolling the campus.

For dates and hours of operation, consult the Safewalk web site.
