BOSS is safe ride service available to UWM students who pay segregated fees, operating every day between the hours of 6 pm and 2 am during the traditional academic calendar. Students may get a ride within the area of our boundaries, which are Capitol Dr. to the north-west, Glendale Ave to the north-east, MLK/3rd St. to the west, Brady St. to the south, and Lake Michigan to the east. BOSS is completely funded through segregated fees, there are no additional charges to use the service.
**You must present your UWM PantherCard to driver**
There are four ways to schedule a BOSS ride:
Download the TapRide app! Rides may be requested from your smartphone (Android / Apple). It takes 10-15 minutes to create user accounts after you first log into the app. You will not be able to request rides until then.
Users without a smartphone can use the UWM’s TapRide website to submit a ride request. It takes 10-15 minutes to create user accounts after you first log into the app. You will not be able to request rides until then.
Schedule a ride at our walk-up window in the Union at Transportation Services (WG 25).
