For your safety as you travel on and around campus, the Police Department offers a number of services to help you get where you need to go in the safest possible manner.
For traveling around campus after daytime hours, consider using Maverick Safety Escort. This free service offers students, faculty, staff, and campus visitors an escort from one location to another. The hours of service are 7 p.m. to 3 a.m., five days a week. Hours may be altered to meet changing University needs. To request an escort at any time, contact the police dispatch at 817-272-3381 or utilize a call box on campus.
This service is provided on Saturdays only for campus residents. The shuttle route (pdf) includes the Parks at Arlington, Target, and Aldi market. The shuttle starts transporting from campus at 8:30 a.m. and runs through 6 p.m. Fare is $2.
Please remember that UT Arlington is located in a major urban area with heavy vehicular traffic. Bisecting our main campus is Cooper Street, which has six lanes of traffic and is consistently busy, especially during normal business hours. When crossing Cooper, be sure to observe crosswalk signals, travel in a group when possible, or utilize the three main bridges that cross Cooper and connect both sides of the campus.
