UC Hastings provides walking escorts whenever 200 McAllister and 333 Golden Gate buildings are open.
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 walking escorts to our campus community.
Walking Escort Service
Urban Alchemy provides walking escorts between campus buildings as well as to the Civic Center Bart/Muni underground station, Muni bus stops in the surrounding area, and to and from nearby parking lots including the Hastings Parking Garage at 376 Larkin Street. To request a walking escort, dial extension 4611 from a campus phone or (415) 565-4611, or request in person with security in the lobbies of the 100 McAllister or 333 Golden Gate buildings. Once requested, UCSF security guards will coordinate with Urban Alchemy to meet you and provide your walking escort.
UC Hastings Van Service — Discontinued Until Spring ’22
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 late fall ’21 or 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.
