LOST & FOUND ITEMS
Prior to departing from a shuttle or leaving a shuttle stop, please survey your area to make sure you have taken all of your belongings with you. The Mustang Express shuttle is not responsible for any personal items which are lost or stolen on any Mustang Express shuttle or shuttle stop. Items found on the Mustang Express shuttle will be turned in to the UWO Campus Police Department on the Monday following the last shuttle on the Saturday. Found items will not be released unless the owner can properly identify the items. Items will only be released by the UWO Campus University Police Department to the owner of lost item with an accurate description.
REFUSAL OF SERVICE
Mustang Express reserves the right to refuse service to any person who, under the influence of intoxicating liquor or drugs, is incapable of taking care of him/her self, or whose conduct is such, or is likely to be such, as to make him/her objectionable to other passengers or prospective passengers.
In the 2015/2016 academic year a review of the Mustang Express was conducted – summarizing the shuttle service’s use and place within the USC. That report can be found HERE.

THE LTC BUS PASS
One of the best parts of being a part of the University Students’ Council is getting free transportation around London. Every full time undergraduate student is issued a London Transit Commission Bus Pass. Some students use the pass simply to ride the 2 Dundas route over and over, seemingly forever, to get back and forth to school.
The LTC Bus Pass allows for:
- Free unlimited rides
- All bus stop locations on all regularly scheduled LTC bus routes
- All hours of operation
- Seven days a week (including holidays)
But don’t be fooled: your bus pass is also your cost-free ticket to exploring the community and getting to experience all the city has to offer. Enjoy the ride!
How do I get my pass?
Bus passes are distributed in the Mustang Lounge of the University Community Centre at the beginning of every school year.
2015/16 Pick-Up Details
INFORMATION WILL BE POSTED IN JULY
**bus passes can be picked up at Mustang Central after the 2 week period in the Mustang Lounge West.
To be eligible to pick up your pass, you must bring your Western student card and be registered as a full-time undergraduate student. If there are any problems with your eligibility status (for example, if you have recently changed from a Part-Time to a Full-Time program), you may be asked to bring your UWO Fee Bill or a letter from the Office of the Registrar indicating that you have been assessed the Bus Pass Fee.
Pro Tip: If you can, bring a book or a friend to the bus pass centre- the line can get pretty long!
