Safety Escorts

Urban Alchemy provides sidewalk safety services along all campus building frontages, specifically along Golden Gate and Hyde between Larkin and Leavenworth as well as along Hyde between Golden Gate and McAllister. As part of those services, Urban Alchemy also provides free walking escorts to our campus community whenever 200 McAllister and 333 Golden Gate buildings are open.

  • Muni Bus Stops In The Surrounding Area
  • To And From The Hastings Parking Garage


UC Hastings Van Service

The UC Hastings Van Service was discontinued temporarily because the vans needed updating and replacement, which process is underway. We expect receipt of the new ADA accessible van sometime in early spring ’22, and will reinstate the program once received. In order to compensate for the temporary discontinuation of the UC Hastings Van Service, we increased the availability of walking escorts, as detailed above, to coincide with buildings hours for 200 McAllister and 333 Golden Gate, whereas previously walking escorts were only available between 5 or 6 pm (contingent upon daylight savings) and the closure of 200 McAllister. We will keep the community posted as we work to reinstitute this offering.
