Safe Solent


About the Service

Safe Solent is brought to you by you Students Union to replace the Night Bus Service that previously ran.

The service is to help facilitate late night study to our students that make use of the Library's late night opening hours, we want to make sure that you guys can keep up with your studies but have peace of mind that you can get home safe during late evenings, nights and early mornings spent in the library.




1. After studying in the library, go to the Library Help Desk

2. Use the Radio Taxi system at the help desk to book yourself a taxi (make sure you provide your name and student ID otherwise it won't work)*

4. Your taxi will arrive and take you home, free of charge!

5. Don't forget to come back here and leave some feedback about your experience

*Please note. The taxi scheme is only able to take you to university halls or private residences in the City Centre, Polygon and Portswood area


The scheme was launched early November 2018 and led by Rich Westlake, your Vice President (Welfare & Community) to get off the ground. After a successful initial trial, the Board of Trustees agreed that there is a need to reduce the costs of the service. For this reason, they have instructed us to conduct a second trial that ends on the 5th April 2019, at which point it will be reviewed by the Board of Trustees as to its future, that's why your feedback is really important so we know how best to provide the service for you.
