Students can call 503.428.7238 during service hours to request a ride between the hours of 5:00pm and 12:00am, Monday through Sunday.

  • The time you would like to be picked up
  • A number at which you can be reached (the driver will call to confirm your ride upon receipt of the message)
  • Be prepared to tell the driver whether you are alone or how many students are in your group.
  • When you get into the van, be prepared to tell the driver your destination and your V# (WOU student ID number)
