Introducing the

SU Taxi SOS is here to help if you find yourself off campus without any money and need an emergency ride home.
We’re working with Roman Cars to save the day.

How it works:

Imagine you arrive at Colchester North Station coming back to campus. You go to get some money from the ATM for a taxi and it’s out of service. Disaster.

Rather than panic or preparing for a long walk home, you can book a taxi through the handy Roman Cars App to get you back to campus or your local home address. Rather than pay, just show your reg card to your driver and then come to SU Reception to pay the normal fare (and a small admin fee of £1.50) within one week of your journey.

There are some terms and conditions and a limit to how many times you can use SU Taxi SOS (it’s only an emergency service), but it’s available 24 hours a day while you’re a student at Essex, another perk of your SU Membership.

The Roman Cars App is available on the Apple App Store or Google Play.
