Winter Break Bus (Semester Break)

Online Registration Form (see below for registration instructions)

The Winter Break bus runs a bit different than the other buses. Since students finish up on finals on different days we run one bus home on Wednesday, December 13th and another one home on Thursday, December 14th. Each bus home stops at all four (4) locations; whereas the buses back to WVU on Saturday, January 6th only have two pickup locations. One bus will pick up students at Hotel ML /Delaware and the other bus will pick up students at GSP MP 100 Rest Stop / AMC Theatre. The four (4) DE/NJ locations are:

  • Delaware I-95 Rest Stop (I-95 Rest Stop in the median at approximate Milepost 5)
  • Hotel ML (Route 73 Northbound between NJ Turnpike & Route I-295 in Mt. Laurel, NJ)
  • AMC Theatre (Hamilton Square - Exit 65 off I-295 in Hamilton, NJ)
  • GSP MP 100 Rest Stop (Garden State Pkwy Monmouth Rest Stop (MP 100), Wall, NJ).

Note students are instructed to leave the dorm within 24 hours of their last exam. However, they can exceed that time if they are using this bus, so long as the respect the no noise rule during finals week. Also, note that dorms close at noon on Thursday, December 14th, so all student must be out of the dorms by that time. They are not required to move all their stuff out during the semester break; though it’s highly recommended that all valuable (i.e. printers, TV) are locked up in their closet.

Cost: $105 (One-way - to Home or to WVU); $155 (Round Trip)

No refunds for cancellation received after November 24, 2017.

These buses usually sell out so, you may want to consider registering early provided the bus schedule works with your student’s class schedule.

Other important information:

  1. There is no ticket needed because the bus drive will have the list of name of students riding the bus. Please be sure to check-in with the driver.
  2. Please be on-time, because there are other buses leaving WVU and we only have a certain window we can be stopped to pick up students.
  3. The Bus company name is “STARR” and the name is clearly marked on the bus.
  4. No smoking or alcohol is permitted on the bus.
  5. The bus may stop for a rest room break but not necessarily for food, so we recommend students bring a snack and drink. Note there is a toilet on the bus.
  6. Luggage is limited to one (1) carry-on & one (1) large or two (2) small suitcase per rider. Note musical instruments for band members are permitted in addition to luggage noted above.
  7. Bus is equipped with Wi-Fi and there are instructions on the bus on how to connect.
  8. Please notify us of any plan changes, so the bus isn’t delayed trying to track down students.

To register and pay for the bus, read the following instructions:

  1. Fill out the registration form by clicking here: Online Registration Form
  2. Fill out the form and click the "Submit" button at the bottom of the form.
  3. A confirmation email will be sent in a day or two after I record your registration in my spreadsheet.
  4. Note that no refunds will be issued for cancellation received less than 20 days before the bus is scheduled to run from WVU.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Catching the bus is not an excusable reason to miss a class. Before booking either of these buses, please check your student’s schedule and make sure they do not have a class or can miss the class with no academic implication.
