Students at The Ohio State University Columbus campus have a new late-night travel option. Lyft Ride Smart at Ohio State will launch August 1, and provides discounted rides between the hours of 9 p.m. and 3 a.m.
"This new service offering is a direct result of our work with the Undergraduate Student Government and adds a transportation option our students have been requesting for years," said Beth Snoke, director of Transportation and Traffic Management.
Lyft Ride Smart replaces the university's previous Safe Ride program after user demand outgrew service capacity.

Transportation and Traffic Management's John Shrader can picture the too-full family SUV at the end of spring semester that couldn’t possibly fit a bicycle.
He can comprehend how a bicycle’s flat tire could be neglected in the hustle and bustle of a student’s school year. And he knows that sometimes students are already in a neighboring state on their drive home before they realize they’ve forgotten their two-wheeled companion.

The annual summer bicycle abatement program is underway at The Ohio State University.
The sweep by the Department of Transportation and Traffic Management helps manage abandoned bikes left on campus.
“We usually get about 400 to 500 bikes per year that people just leave behind,” said John Shrader, field logistics coordinator for Transportation and Traffic Management.
Department staff tag bicycles parked on campus with a bright yellow warning notice. Owners are given two weeks to move the bikes after they’ve been tagged. Bicycles not moved after two weeks are impounded and held for 90 days.
