Buses Home during University Breaks
Since 1998, the Mountaineer Parents Club has been providing buses to aid families in bringing students closer to home during Thanksgiving, Winter and Spring breaks.
What began with just 2 buses heading north has turned into a service that now offers buses to several different destinations across the Northeast. The Mountaineer Parents Club partners with the Rally to offer service to Hagerstown, MD; Carlisle, PA; Harrisburg, PA; Scranton, PA; Allentown, PA; King of Prussia, PA, and Secaucus, NJ, as well as a bus to Newbrough, NY.
We also have buses to Columbia and Bowie, MD; Northern VA and Long Island, NY through our Parents Club chapters in those areas.
IMPORTANT: While we do our best to accommodate viable departure and safe arrival times for all students and parents, we realize that some students may have classes that meet after the scheduled departure time. All professors give students a syllabus at the beginning of the semester that details their attendance policy and how many days the student can miss. Ultimately, it is the student’s responsibility to discuss missing class with their professors. The holiday buses are provided as a service for those able to work within these time constraints.
Please note - minimum ridership must be met for the buses to run.
