STRIPES Will Not Pick Up Students from Dayglow
COLUMBIA - STRIPES, the University of Missouri's official safe ride program, will not pick up or drop off university students at the Dayglow event taking place on April 27 at the Midway Expo Center, or any other event taking place outside Columbia city limits.
STRIPES's charter with the university states that it operates within the city limits of Columbia, MO. The Midway Expo Center is outside these limits, and STRIPES is therefore unable to provide transportation to this location.
"Due to the clause in our charter that states that we operate within Columbia city limits, we will not be sending cars to that location," STRIPES Director Nic Haltenhof said. "Students are encouraged to find an alternative way home."
STRIPES is an auxiliary of the Missouri Students Association, the undergraduate student government of the University of Missouri. The free service operates every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night.
