"The new cart will immediately decrease the response time to escorts," Corp. Brett Waddell of UAPD said. "With an average of 800 escorts each month, taking into account that some are frequent users of the service, it will impact an estimated 500 people each month."
Waddell says he believes the enhancement of this program can potentially help an additional 150 to 200 students every month.
Razorback Patrol received a $22,000 grant from the Women's Giving Circle to buy the golf cart and offset additional costs with the program.
