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, A1 Taxis and X Service Taxis have signed the Safe Taxi Policy. As a Students’ Union we recommend that you use these three taxi companies when travelling at any time, ensuring you receive a safe and cheap journey.
All taxi companies that have signed up to the Policy pledge to provide safe, fairly-priced taxis to all Students, for students travelling to Storthes Hall; you’re guaranteed to be dropped off at the main reception and not left at the gates to the complex.
Another benefit of the Safe Taxi Policy is the offer of an Emergency Taxi Service, exclusively for students at the Universtiy of Huddersfield, if for whatever reason you find yourself without the means to pay for a ride home. If you’re in need of this service, give your driver your student ID details and your ride home will be free. The taxi company you've used will then invoice the Students’ Union for the journey and we will contact you for payment at a later date. The Emergency Taxi Service 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 given to the taxi company.
