A brief description of the program:

Tiger Patrol

Tiger Patrol is a joint venture between the DSU and Dalhousie University. Available on all three campuses, Tiger Patrol is a student-staffed, walk-home and patrol service that operates on University property. A prescheduled shuttle bus service also operates between the campuses and designated locations in the Halifax Regional Municipality. Both services are available during the academic year, seven days a week.

U-Pass is a special transit pass specifically designed for Dalhousie and King's students. If you're a full-time student, the U-Pass lets you ride Metro Transit buses, ferries, and Community Transit buses from September to April. The program is is convenient, reliable and flexible. You can take the bus or the ferry to shop, sight-see, or simply head downtown seven days a week
The shuttle bus service is available to all students, faculty and staff of Dalhousie University. Your Dalhousie identification card will serve as your boarding pass, so make sure you don't forget it! The two shuttle buses each have the passenger capacity for five plus the two Tiger Patrol personnel who operate it.
