Sober Ride once again helping to keep Homecoming celebration safe

October 7, 2019

For the ninth year, Sober Ride will provide free transportation to Memorial Stadium and campus locations on Saturday, Oct. 12, 2019, the day of Indiana State University's Homecoming football game.

People who are concerned about driving themselves or riding in a car with a driver who may have been drinking can walk to marked stops along Wabash Avenue to board the Sober Ride bus.

Sober Ride is not a shuttle service to bars and parties. The rides are only to Memorial Stadium and campus locations.

"We're working hard to keep our Homecoming fun and safe," said Andy Morgan, Interim Vice President for Student Affairs. "We thank our sponsors for making Sober Ride possible during this much-anticipated day of celebrating Indiana State University."

Sober Ride is sponsored by Zink Distributing, Hi 99 WTHI, 100.7 Mix FM, 102.7 WBOW, 98.5 The River, WIBQ-Talk Radio, ISU Public Safety, ISU Student Health Promotion, Office of the Dean of Students, and the Division of Student Affairs.
