All you need to do is call City Taxis on 0114 239 39 39, remembering to quote ‘Safe Taxi Scheme’.

Once you arrive at your destination, instead of paying, you can hand over your UCard. The taxi driver will give you a receipt and will return your UCard to the Students’ Union welcome desk within 24-48 hours.

All you need to do is simply take your receipt along to the welcome desk, pay the taxi fare and get your UCard back.
