Campus Cruiser began in 1978 with the Department of Public Safety (DPS). At the time, there were only three employees working in the Campus Cruiser department. The program’s purpose was to provide added security to those traveling on or near campus. Today, Campus Cruiser continues to provide safe and efficient transportation options to the university and its community.
