BUSU brings Drive Home program back for exams

Tired student having a lot to read

Brock University Students’ Union is bringing back its 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 this year a route through Niagara Falls has been added.

Drive Home currently uses Niagara-on-the-Lake’s Community Transportation Group.


The Drive Home Program has given 1385 rides during both the December and April exam periods since the program’s inception three years ago.

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, Dec. 5 – Tuesday, Dec. 16 (No Sunday Service)
· 11:30 p.m. Thorold loop
· 12 a.m. Catharines loop
· 12:45 a.m. Niagara Falls loop (new service route)
· 1:30 a.m. St. Catharines loop
· 2 a.m. Thorold loop
· 2:30 a.m. St. Catharines loop

The routes and drop points can be found on the map below.

Visit the Drive Home website 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.
