Cougar Ride Hours: 9:00pm to 3:00am 7 Days a week


The Cougar Ride After-Hours Shuttle Service is a new program from Parking & Transportation Services that provides rides to and from all on-campus shuttle stops, as well as MD Anderson Library and Cougar Village/Moody Towers. The service is part of the multi-faceted approach of the Transportation & Security Work Group.

The service is available 7 days a week from 9pm-3am*, and is free to all members of the UH Community. You can request a ride any time between 9:00pm and 2:45am.

This Service is:

  • A ride service that is a supplement to the Cougar Line Shuttles
  • A service that will take you to and from all Cougar Line Shuttle stops, as well as MD Anderson Library and Cougar Village/Moody Towers

This Service is NOT:

  • Uber. The drivers will not take you to your door or vehicle. The Cougar Ride Van will drop you at your selected shuttle stop or stops at MD Anderson Library/Cougar Village/Moody Towers 

If you feel unsafe and want a ride directly to your vehicle or door, please contact UH Security at (713)743-3333 to request a security escort

Please Note:

  • Be at the pick-up location when you make your ride request. Do not request a ride while still travelling to campus
  • Make sure you know which shuttle stop you are at when requesting your ride
