LU Transportation Services & LUPD Escort Service

You are here


The LUPD walking escort service and the Lehigh Transportation Office  provide an alternative to walking alone after dark. The Lehigh Campus Buses follow a fixed route around campus. Use Lehigh Campus Buses when it is in service, and the walking escort service at other times from dusk to dawn. Both services are open to the Lehigh University community. Think safety! Plan ahead to walk with a friend, call for LUPD escort service or use the Lehigh Campus Bus System.

LUPD ESCORT SERVICE: (610) 758-4200

To use the walking escort service at night, call 610-758-4200.

Give LU Police Dispatchers your name, present location, and destination. When the escort arrives, show your Lehigh ID and proceed to your destination.
