BOSS has expanded boundaries! Take a look on our boundaries page by clicking here!
BOSS is safe ride service available to UWM students, 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, 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.
