You’re a first year student, living away from home, embracing the student life (including nights out) and your mother is driving you a bit crackers worrying about your new 5 days a week night out life-style and what-ifs. Well, worry no more thanks to the continuing partnership between WIT Students’ Union and Rapid Cabs Waterford for their “Get Home Safe” campaign which ensures that no student will ever be stranded. Simply provide them with your student card and pay when you collect it the next day. “In our industry we see it all. Being safe when out at night comes down to making smart decisions. That is why messages like this are so important. It seems obvious not to walk home alone but when you are out and have no money, you do not think you have a choice. Now you do,” advised Eric O’ Brien, CEO of Rapid Cabs. The hope is that this will encourage students to make safe and smart decisions when they are out and about enjoying their new-found freedom in Waterford City and won’t take unnecessary risks to get home. Celine Casey, WITSU Welfare Officer fully supports the continuance of the initiative “The Safe Home Scheme is a fantastic initiative between WIT Students Union and Rapid Cabs. The Safe Home Scheme means that students can get home safe by just handing in there WIT card and they can pay the next day when they collect there WIT card. This is a great service that we hope to continue with throughout the year.” Mammies all over Ireland can now be ensured that no matter what their child will “Get Home Safe.”
