Safe Taxi Scheme

Cardiff Met Students’ Union is pleased to launch its ‘Cardiff Met Safe Taxi’ scheme in association with Dragon Taxis. The scheme is designed to be an emergency safeguard for students who are stuck in Cardiff with no way to get home. The scheme, active between 10pm and 6am every day aims to ensure that all Cardiff Met students have a way to return home safely at the end of the night, allowing them to book a taxi using just their full name and student card. Full details of the scheme can be found at Students are reminded that this is an emergency scheme and all fares should be repaid to the Students’ Union within 7 days of the journey.
