Q. I've got no money how can I safely get home?
NSU are promoting their initiative to ensure students get home safely even if they have no money with them. You can phone Budget Taxis (0191 298 5050) asking for a taxi to be sent on the Northumbria Students Union account for local fares to the value of up to £8. At the end of the journey you should give the driver your smartcard in lieu of payment and keep the receipt he gives you. The following day you can collect your card from the Students Union and pay your bill.
