Since our school campus is an open space, it is difficult to strictly control the type of civilians that pass through the campus. There are several dark locations that may endanger the safety of teachers and students, especially female staffs and students. Furthermore, most students can only walk or take a taxi after the public transportation service stopped. As a result, the Traffic Control and Security Section purchased two 125c.c. motorcycles at the end of 2005 to provide free escort service to teachers and students at night in order to ensure the safety and convenience of females who return late at night.
The escort service is between 9pm and 5am. Teachers and students in need of the service can call the hotline: 02-26235101. The line can only receive incoming calls and cannot dial out in order to ensure a free line at all time. An escort staff will be sent out right away upon receiving the call to locations within 1km of the campus. This service is available for either students who stay up late in the library or those who need to go home from the metro station. If more than one student requested for the service at the same time, a part-time student or university police will be sent out to assist the escort.
To ensure the safety and security of the escort service, the escort staffs and passengers are all insured for accidents and the speed limit is restricted at under 30km/hr. Since the commencement from three and half a years ago, the result of the service has been well recognized among teachers and students. As a result, the service frequency is fairly high during the semester. We are currently recruiting more part-time students so that their motorcycles can also be used to support the escort service at night. (The service stopped by 2018.08.01)
