We’ve all been there. It’s 2am, you’re cold/lost/penniless and there’s no way of getting home without walking for an hour in the rain. Before, there were always your parents or friends with a car as a last call. In Oxford? We have the SAFETY BUS!

The Safety Bus scheme is a volunteer run welfare service for staff and students at Brookes. Our main priority is to take vulnerable students home – but we will also transport any other students when we have the time to do so and all we ask for this is a voluntary donation of £1.

Volunteer for the Safety Bus

The bus can only run when we have volunteers to staff it – so we are always looking for more drivers and passenger-managers to add to the safety bus team. 

There are several ways of joining in, and everyone is welcome. Most volunteers are co-drivers – they answer the phone, plan the route, and tell the driverwhere to go. If you’re 19 or over and have held a full UK car license then you can drive the MPV – we provide training. Find out more about volunteering with the Safety Bus. 

If you don’t fancy going out on the bus at night but would like to help anyway, we have roles that make a difference for you too. If you would like to join this elite group of students, email us on and we will arrange for you to come to a training session.

Safety Bus Access for Disabled Students

The safety bus is not wheelchair accessible. Our main priority is to ensure vulnerable students arrive home safely. Those who are unable to use the safety bus can still call us and we will ensure you get home safely.
