Huskie Safe Line

We offer shuttle ride service 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 by calling us to request the service. This service runs from 11:00 PM to 5:30 AM.
