Our Safe Taxi Policy launched in 2018 is an agreement between Huddersfield Students' Union and local taxi companies, pledging to provide safe travel for all students. So far GT Taxis and A1 Taxis have signed the Safe Taxi Policy. As a Students’ Union we recommend that you use these two taxi companies when travelling at any time, ensuring you receive a safe and cheap journey.
All taxi companies signed up to the Safe Taxi Policy also offer an emergency taxi service to any student who is need of one. This means that you are able to order a taxi from any company signed up to the Safe Taxi Policy, give them your student ID details and get a FREE taxi home at that time from any destination. The taxi company you've used will then invoice the Students’ Union for the taxi ride and we will contact you for the payment of the taxi at a later date. The emergency taxi system is in place to help students who cannot afford to pay to get home at the time and should not be taken advantage of. The Students’ Union will be taking responsibility for the initial payment of the journey but will be following up for repayment through the student ID number given to the taxi company.
For students travelling to Storthes Hall; the Taxi Company will guarantee that all students with a destination of Storthes Hall are dropped off at Storthes Hall reception and are not left at the main gates to the complex.
