Cruiser Closing Temporarily – Lyft “Classic” Rides Now Available at HSC and UPC!

For the duration of the 2021 Spring semester, Lyft is available at HSC and UPC and will cover classic rides!  Campus Cruiser is currently closed.  While we are closed, Lyft will be providing our Safe Ride services.  Lyft is suspending their Shared ride programs but will now provide classic rides for free.  This service is now open to faculty and staff as well.  Lyft at UPC is open 7 AM to 2 AM, seven days a week.  Lyft at HSC is open 7 AM to midnight, Monday through Friday only.  If you need access to this program and have not received an invitation, please email Michelle Garcia at  Lyft will resume normal evening only operations on May 14, 2021.


Powered by Campus Cruiser, and supplemented by LYFT, our Safe Ride Program is designed to make the USC Community a safer place for those who study, work or take classes at night.

Our Campus Cruiser program started in 1978 and now operates year round, averaging 3,000 rides per week. Students can book a ride through the web platform, mobile app or by calling 213.740.4911 at UPC or 323.442.2100 at HSC.

As the university population has grown, so has the reliance on ride share. With Campus Cruiser at maximum capacity, we now partner with Lyft to offer free Lyft rides to students within the free-ride zone. Last year Lyft complemented our Campus Cruiser program with up to 30,000 free rides per week.
