The Huskie Safe Line provides a shuttle ride service from 11 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. during late night hours after the Huskie Bus Line stops running. This free service is available to NIU students, faculty and staff as well as community members with disabilities. Riders must present a valid NIU One Card or Illinois Person with a Disability Identification Card to use the service and are allowed to bring a guest with them.

The shuttle ride service travels a fixed route with 35 pick-up and drop-off locations for your convenience. Riders can simply go to the closest stop and wait for the van by the sign that says “Huskie Safe Line.”

Our handicap accessible shuttle ride service is available to persons with disabilities and individuals with children by calling (815) 753-2222 to request the service.
