S.A.F.E. - Security Awareness For Employees

PPMC employees are reminded to use available services and common sense when travelling especially during evening and late night hours.


Walking escorts are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, between 43rd & 30th St. and Market St. to Baltimore Ave.  Escorts are also available from 10:00AM until 3:00AM between 50th & 30th and Spring Garden St. to Woodland Ave. via the University’s partnership with the University District Ambassador Program.

How to request a Walking Escort:

-          Ask any Public Safety Officer on patrol or inside a building

-          Call 215-898-WALK(9255) or 511 (from Penn campus phone)

-          Use one of the many building and blue - light ephones located on and off Penn’s campus.


Penn Transit Services, 215-898-RIDE (7433), operated by Penn’s Division of Business Services, provides mobile escort services for all members of the Penn community, from 6PM – 3AM daily (*on-call for emergencies, 3AM to 7AM), operating within the following boundaries: 50th Street – 20th Street and Spring Garden Street to Woodland Avenue.  A PennCard ID (HUP ID) is required for use of these services.

Remember, security would rather be called and not needed, than needed and not called.
