For those who use alternative transportation, there are several programs that insure easy access to emergency transportation should the need arise.
For all CAP Participants, UNC’s Point-2-Point service offers the Emergency Ride Back Service (ERB). The ERB service is provided for sudden, urgent, unexpected, and unscheduled situations. CAP participants never have to worry about being stranded. The Point-2-Point vehicles provide campus-to-car and campus-to-home service to any park & ride lot served by Chapel Hill Transit and to any destination falling within the Carrboro and Chapel Hill city limits.
To use this service, simply call 962-7867, identify yourself as a CAP participant and give your location and destination. A P2P van will be dispatched to get you where you need to go.
Triangle Transit has its own emergency ride program called Emergency Ride Home. Everyone, including non-CAP participants, may use the program and it can be used on any day that an alternative commuting method has been used - even one unaffiliated with Triangle Transit. However, prior registration is REQUIRED. To quickly sign up, visit the website.
As an employee, do you need to be able to park on campus for a medical appointment? To park in the Dogwood Deck or at ACC parking for an appointment, you’ll need to display a special permit to avoid a citation. It’s easy. Find out what you need to know here.
Safe Ride service is a special service paid for by UNC students and provided by Chapel Hill Transit. Safe Ride operates on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings from 11:00 p.m. to 2:30 a.m. during the Fall and Spring semesters. It’s focus is providing fare-free late night service for those living in the apartment complexes close to campus. If you live locally and work until after the buses stop running, you may find this service useful. Find out the details here.
