Safety Escort Service

The Department of Public Safety operates a Safety Escort service with the USF campus shuttle, Monday through Sunday.

Escorts requested to and from off-campus locations must be to a residential address with the following boundaries:

For a security escort, please contact Public Safety at 415-422-4201. Provide the dispatcher with your name, USF identification number, current location, and the location of the destination.

The safety escort service is provided by a Public Safety officer or USF Campus Shuttle to help insure your safety. The service is NOT a taxi service. All escorts are from an off-campus residence to campus or from campus to an off-campus residence. The service is NOT to restaurants, bars or bus stops.  The shuttle has a primary responsibility to students, staff, and faculty with disabilities. On a case by case basis, students in need of medical assistance may be transported to St. Mary's or Kaiser Hospitals.  (Geary/Divisadero).
