Celebrate responsibly and ditch the car keys! This Super Bowl Sunday, the Wind River Transportation Authority (WRTA) is offering FREE SafeRide services in both Riverton and Lander to ensure everyone gets home safely after enjoying the big game.
Here’s what you need to know:
Dates & Times: Sunday, February 11th, 2024 from 4:00 PM to 11:00 PM
Locations: Riverton and Lander, Wyoming
Service Area: Anywhere within city limits
IT’S FREE: We provide this service to the communities of Riverton and Lander, for FREE. Our main priority is making sure you don’t drink and drive, but if you’d like to just get a ride to the grocery store, that’s cool too!
No Cross Service: Please note that there will be no cross-service between Lander and Riverton.
Central Dispatch: All rides will be coordinated via phone call with WRTA dispatch (307-856-WRTA), and direct walk ups (in coordination with WRTA dispatch). Last minute changes to drop-off locations may be denied depending on schedule availability.

As part of our commitment to community safety and engagement, we are seeking volunteer Sidekick’s from each municipality or police department (off duty). Your participation in this community partnership will play a crucial role in ensuring the safety of our employees, and the quality of our service. We simply cannot operate this service alone.
- Counting Passengers:
- Keep track of how many passengers get on and off the vehicle each night. These numbers are important and become the official count for the day.
- Navigating Streets:
- Help the driver find their way around Riverton or Lander. Assist in figuring out the best routes to pick up and drop off passengers.
- Recording Locations:
- Write down where passengers are picked up and dropped off. This helps us keep things organized.
- Safety Assistance:
- Work with the driver to make sure everyone stays safe and follows the rules of SafeRide. Listen to the driver’s guidance on this.
- Passenger Interaction:
- Chat with passengers to make sure everyone is having a good time with SafeRide. Help create a positive atmosphere on the journey.
If your schedule permits, we would greatly appreciate your support in this initiative. Please let us know if you or someone from your team would be available to participate as ride-along volunteers by reaching out to us at [email protected] or (307)856-WRTA.
Your dedication to community well-being is invaluable, and we believe that together, we can make the SafeRide program a reliable, sustainable, and secure transportation option for residents.
