Drive Home is Back & Has Expanded to Niagara Falls

Brock University Students’ Union is happy to announce the return of our Drive Home program. The program provides students with after hour rides home while they stay late at school to study during exam periods. Previously, the program serviced St. Catharines and Thorold, and we are excited to announce the addition of a route through Niagara Falls.

Drive Home currently uses the professional and quality team from the Community Transportation Group, located in N-O-T-L.  The Drive Home Program services St. Catharines and Thorold during both the December and April exam periods and has given 1385 rides home since the programs inception in December of 2011.  While the St. Catharines and Thorold routes will remain as usual, there is a slight change to their timing.  This will allow for the extended travel time to Niagara Falls during the winter.  The departure dates and times will be as follows:

Friday December 5th – Tuesday December 16th. (No Sunday Service)

  • 11:30 PM : Thorold Loop
  • 12:00 AM : St. Catharines Loop
  • 12:45 AM : Niagara Falls Loop (new service route)
  • 1:30 AM  : St. Catharines Loop
  • 2:00 AM  : Thorold Loop
  • 2:30 AM  : St. Catharines Loop

The routes and drop points can be found on the map below. When you go to www.brockbusu.ca/drivehome to book your ride, you will be asked to selected your desired time-slot as well as city and drop point. After you have registered, we ask that be outside the Isaac’s patio 5-10 minutes before your scheduled ride.  Once you will check-in with one of our staff/volunteers, you can sit back and enjoy the ride.  If for some reason you miss your scheduled ride, please register for the next available ride.

 Lastly, if the weather conditions become problematic and for some reason your ride has been postponed, altered or cancelled, you will receive an email notification as soon as possible.  There are times during the December exam period where weather conditions could change without warning. We will do our very best to ensure everything runs on-time.

Thank you for your interest and use of the BUSU Drive Home Program and good luck on studying/exams.
