About the Scheme

The Safe Taxi Scheme was launched as a partnership between Cardiff University Students' Union and Dragon Taxis in 2012. The scheme was initiated by our Welfare and Community Officer (2012 - 2013), Megan David, to help students get home safely on nights out. The scheme has continued to grow since then with increased promotion during September and October every year when new students arrive in Cardiff.

  • The scheme is available 24 hours per day
  • There is a maximum allowance of £20 on the account and max 4 students are to travel at any given time.
  • The drop off point must be a student residential address, Halls of Residence, Police Station or Hospital.
