Buses Schedule for 2021-2022 Academic Year

The Southern New Jersey Mountaineer Parents Club has plans for charter buses during WVU’s long weekend break (October) and semester breaks (Thanksgiving, Winter and Spring Break) 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 Stalnaker Hall (Maiden Lane) located on the Downtown campus and Lincoln Hall (Rawley Ave) located on the Evansdale campus.  The Delaware location is the Delaware Rest Stop on I-95 (Newark, DE) and three NJ locations are at the Cherry Hill Train Station (2240 NJ-70, Cherry Hill, NJ) in Lot 1 next to the ShopRite on Route 70 in Cherry Hill, NJ; the NJ Transit / Amtrak Hamilton Train Station (800 Sloan Avenue - Exit 65B off I-295) in Hamilton, NJ and the Garden State Parkway Monmouth Rest Stop at MP 100 in Wall, NJ. 

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 

To register for the bus the student must read the Assumption of the Risk and Waiver of Liability Relating to Coronavirus/COVID-19 clause on the form and agree to it without exception by clicking the acceptance button prior to being able to complete the registration form.

Cost: $125 (One-way to Home or One-way to WVU); $195 (Round-trip)
