No matter where you are in Oxford, we'll help you get home safely. If you haven’t got the cash to get home, you can use our Safe Taxi Scheme.
The Safe Taxi Scheme was launched as a partnership between Brookes Union and 001 Taxis in September 2019. The scheme was initiated to help students get home safely at all hours of the day, even if they don’t have any cash on them. It was commissioned following a review of the Safety Bus service provision and wider themes of safe travel in the city. The Safety Bus ceased operating at the end of Semester 2 in 2019.
Daisy, VP: Welfare, stated:
“I am really excited about the new Safe Taxi Travel Scheme as it means that students will have a safe and reliable means of getting home 365 days a year and 24 hours a day. The Safety Bus only operated between 9pm - 3am Mon- Sat, exc. Tue, and so the taxi scheme is a major improvement on this provision. The taxi scheme also offers additional benefits, such as vehicle tracking and text messages confirming your booking. I’d like to thank all of the Safety Bus volunteers for their dedication across the years. They have done an incredible job in helping students get home safely”.
