Since its founding in 2001, STRIPES has given more than 180,000 free, safe and confidential rides, keeping students and community members safe on the roads of the city we call home.
STRIPES is completely student-run, offering Mizzou students rides home on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights during the fall and spring semesters. As STRIPES continues to grow and expand to keep up with demand, operational costs have risen. Annual expenses are projected to approach $100,000 per year in the next five years.
Gifts to the STRIPES Endowment Fund will help ensure the safety of Mizzou students for years to come.
