AS Safe Rides

Associated Students (AS) is providing Safe Rides to undergraudate Tritons. Need to get somewhere transit doesn't go or when transit doesn't run? AS has you covered!

AS Safe Rides provides accessibility to Tritons on trips to off campus emergency/urgent care, off campus parties in surrounding suburbs, night life like local bars and or night clubs (without driving under the influence), etc. Limited redemptions of discounts are offered on rides of student's choice. Use your UC San Diego email address to redeem your code.

What is AS?

AS stands for Associated Students, the Undergraduate Student Government at UC San Diego. Managing $7-10 million dollars in undergraduate student fees, we focus on students needs, advocacy, and resources. Our Safe Rides program is one of the ways we hope to contribute to your student experience.

Want more Safe Rides from AS?

Reach out to your student representatives and tell them! The Associated Students Senate allocates funds to the program, and your Senators are just an email or DM away.

I love the AS Safe Rides program, thank you for funding it. I would like to see you advocate for more funding towards the program, as my student representative.

Having trouble getting this quarter's code?

Are you getting this error message: "You've already received the e-mail for this quarter." but haven't redeemed your AS Safe Ride this quarter?  You probably tried to redeem the code before the quarter started. Email with subject AS Safe Rides, from your UCSD email and be sure to include undergraduate PID.


Xavier's probably got answers. He is the very cool, very sexy AVP of Enterprises and Services at UCSD. He doesn’t really need an introduction, but we enjoy talking about him, so we’re going to. He is the almighty overseer from AS who is dedicated to student services like AS Safe Rides, Triton Televison, KSDT Radio, AS Graphic Studio, and enterprises like Triton Outfitters.

Xavier loves to eat ice cream, go on long walk at the beach, surf, & hike. We watch him in awe most of the time. Our only complaint is that he’s too busy dealing with his enterprises and services to be with us (he also has a wicked sense of humor)!

You can contact AVP Lopez at or DM on insta.
