Buses Schedule for 2018-2019 Academic Year

The Southern New Jersey Mountaineer Parents Club has plans for a charter bus(s) during University long weekends and breaks for the upcoming academic year. We will have two pick-up locations at WVU and four drop offs locations with one in Delaware and three in NJ.  These will be the same pickup and drop off location on the return trip back to WVU.

The two WVU locations are Maiden Lane in between Stalnaker Hall & the Mountain Lair plaza and Rawley Ave between Brooke Tower and Lincoln Hall.  The Delaware location is the I-95 Rest Stop (Newark, DE) and three NJ locations are at the Hotel ML (Mt. Laurel) on Route 73 Northbound between the NJ Turnpike and Route I-295; the AMC Theatre in Hamilton Square (Exit 65 off I-295) (Hamilton, NJ) and the Garden State Parkway Monmouth Rest Stop at MP 100 (Wall, NJ).  For the 3-day weekend runs (Labor Day, Fall Break and Easter) the bus will not stop at the AMC location, unless we end up running two buses.

Refunds policies will vary for the buses and will be stated on each buses registration page.  Please do not book the bus to hold a spot while other transportation means are being sought.

Cost: $125 (One-way - to Home or to WVU); $175 (Round Trip)
