ShuttleBanner

The beginning of the Spring 2015 semester brought happy news to our university community: VIU will now offer a regular shuttle service to its students, faculty, staff, and guests. The shuttle, which provides service at designated times Monday through Saturday, will transport passengers between VIU’s Village Drive and Pender campuses. Current students have expressed their appreciation for this new, easy way to get from one class to another without the need for a long walk or waiting for the bus. The shuttle also will provide transportation to university events, such as the new student orientation event which was held on January 15 in the Village Drive location. In the future, the shuttle will also provide transportation to off-campus university-sponsored events.
