Night Escort Safety Service

Don't Walk Alone, Call The Night Escort Service!

Night Escort Safety Services are available for students throughout the academic year. Services will begin Thursday, September 28 2017 and end Thursday, June 14 2017. The Safety Escort Program will be available from 7 pm to 12:15 am. However, services are not available during Winter and Spring breaks; nor on the weekend and holidays. Individuals seeking an escort are encouraged to use the new Tap Ride App. If unable to download the app, please call the Police Dispatch Center at 831.459.2100.

Beginning last Spring Quarter of 2017, the Night Safety Escort Services began to utilize a newly launched app: Tap Ride. Tap Ride has allowed students more accessibility to the Night Safety Services. 

The Safety Escort Program is staffed by Student Ambassadors who are employed by the Police Department. This program is not intended to replace existing transportation services such as the Metro Bus and Campus Shuttles. Neither is it meant to discourage individuals from walking in groups. Instead, it is intended to provide a safe and reliable means of transit from one location to another on the campus. The program is meant to ensure the safety of students who feel endangered or unsafe during night hours.

In order to run safely and efficiently, the program has implemented a few limitations. The Safety Escort Program cannot provide escort services to or from off campus locations.  Intoxicated and/or disorderly students will not be transported; nor is food or alcohol allowed in the shuttle.  The Ambassadors reserve the right to refuse transport.  Additionally, the Ambassadors may provide walking escorts in lieu of using a vehicle.
