Students in Glasgow will be able to ensure they have a safe way of getting home after a night out, thanks to a new scheme set up by a taxi firm.
Glasgow Taxis have signed up to the Safe Taxi scheme, which permits students to guarantee payment for their taxi journey, even if they have no cash or a debit card on them at the time.
The system works via student cards. Students will be able to call the firm for a taxi, and by quoting a code issued by the university they can get that ride for free after giving their matriculation card to the driver at the end of their journey.
The next day, the student can repay the cost to their student union and pick up their card.
Following successful trials at universities across Manchester, Sheffield and Liverpool, students from Glasgow Caledonian and Strathclyde University will be able to utilise the scheme.
