night commuter
 n.— «To avoid LRA abduction, every night as many as 40,000 children flee their homes in the countryside to sleep in the relative safety of towns. They seek refuge overnight at churches, hospitals, bus stations and temporary shelters before returning home again each morning. They are known as “night commuters.”» —“The “Night Commuters”; Uganda’s Forgotten Children of War” by Bruno Stevens Human Rights Watch June, 2005. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
