Free taxi rides can be provided in emergency situations for faculty, staff, house officers, and students to return to their vehicle parked in remote lots or to any location (home, school, daycare provider, etc.). Eligible types of emergencies covered by the program include: house officer fatigue, personal illness, family illness or injury, unscheduled overtime or other mandatory work-related holdover, stranded carpool or vanpool riders. The service cannot be used to get to work, for weather-related inconveniences, pre-planned appointments, personal errands or travel between University buildings (including residence halls).
The service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Use of the program is limited to six times per permit year.
To request a ride, call the Department of Public Safety at (734) 763-1131.
