SafeRide Signs Memorandum of Understanding
July 26, 2011 — SafeRide released a Memorandum of Understanding that provides general terms of understanding between the parties in connection with the SafeRide program for Fiscal Year 2012.
The MOU outlines SafeRide responsibilities for the Associated Students of the University of Wyoming Student Government (ASUW), Wyoming Technical Institute (WyoTech), the Albany County Coalition to Prevent Substance Abuse (CPSA) and Laramie GM Auto Center (LGMAC).
Part of WyoTech's responsibilities will be to do all non-preventative maintenance at cost and repair interior damage to the three ASUW-owned vans and provide the parts and materials for repairs.
ASUW is responsible for SafeRide's day-to-day operations and hiring, training, supervising and managing all SafeRide employees. During FY12, ASUW shall commit $132,552.40 from student fees to SafeRide.
Some of CPSA's responsibilities will be to commit a minimum of $8,000 for SafeRide advertising and also assist ASUW with development of social marketing campaigns and other educational efforts.
LGMAC will provide free oil, lube and filter and tire rotation services for the three ASUW-owned vans.
SafeRide is a free program that provides safe transportation to UW students and the Laramie community. The program gives approximately 33,000 rides a month and is approaching 250,000 total rides this year.
