SafeBus operates Fridays and Saturdays from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. while school is in session. Six accessible buses will be covering three separate routes; with two buses on each route. All rules that apply to daily KU on Wheels and Park & Ride routes also apply to SafeBus. Each bus is equipped with six security cameras for rider safety.

The SafeRide and SafeBus programs are run by KU on Wheels. It is funded by the SafeRide student fee, by the State of Kansas.
