Safety Escort Service
The Department of Public Safety operates a Safety Escort service with the USF campus shuttle, Monday thru Sunday.
Public Safety Officers also assist in providing Safety Escorts when the
USF Shuttle is not in service. The service is intended to provide a
safe means of transportation when no other form is available. Escorts
requested to and from off-campus locations must be to a residential
address with the following boundaries:
- North Boundary: California Street
- East Boundary: Divisadero Street
- South Boundary: Fell Street
- West Boundary: 6th Avenue
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
(Geary/Divisadero). Any other locations
are at the discretion of the Shift Supervisor. If the student misuses
the safety escort service, a fine will be assessed for each violation.
