Hey STUdents! As some of you may know, this upcoming Monday, November 12th, Fredericton Transit will not be running in lieu of Remembrance Day however, unfortunately the university has decided to still run classes on Monday.
As a result of this decision, the STUSU wishes to highlight some other transportation options for students who ordinarily rely on Fredericton Transit to get to campus.
The “Share My Ride” Facebook group can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/2026443044304407/. Through this Facebook group students can connect in order to carpool to campus on Monday.
In the evening, we encourage students to take advantage of SafeRide, the free ride service the STUSU operates in conjunction with the UNB Student Union. SafeRide begins running at 5:30 p.m. and ends at 11:30 p.m. Students can be picked up at James Dunn Hall, the Student Union Building or Head Hall and can be driven home anywhere within the SafeRide radius. Your student ID must be presented in order to take SafeRide.
Finally, the STUSU has partnered with Checker Cab in order to provide $5 cab coupons to students who must cab to campus. Students can pick up these coupons from the Help Desk between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
In addition, if students are concerned about academic commitments for Monday and none of the above transportation options will work for you, the STUSU encourages you to reach out to tyour professors to see if accommodations can be made for any work that may be missed on Monday due to the transportation issue.
