Walking
Walking is not the best option but if you have to, never walk alone. All students are equally at risk - contrary to popular belief, men are statistically more likely to be assaulted on the way home than women.
Plan your route in advance sticking to main roads and footpaths and avoiding poorly lit areas – especially shortcuts such as parks and dingy alleyways.

Taxis and Public Transport
Unless you want to be taken for a ride, watch out for rogue taxis and check with your students’ union for recommended companies. Pre-book a licensed taxi or find out the location of designated taxi ranks.


Remember, your safety is more important than the taxi fare. If you plan to use public transport to get home, try to sit near the driver.
