A van escort service that runs after 12 a.m. that guarantees students a safe ride home, be it from the library or a frat party at 3 a.m. You must call ahead from wherever you are, and they come to your door. There is normally a bit of a wait for this service.
There is a special arrangement that if a student is out at night and too intoxicated to drive home, he/she can take a cab for free and charge it to UVA.

Also, there is a free trolley that runs from the UVA bus stops to the Downtown Mall every 15 minutes.
