Your Favourite Safe Services are Back!

It’s that time of year again, where we are staying later and later at the library. Hang in there, brighter days are ahead! After dark, SSMU provides two services to help you get home safe: DriveSafe and WalkSafe!


Next week starting Wednesday, April 13th, there will be a table in the library for you to access the service, or you can always call the number (514) 398-8040! Also if you’re seeing this before then, their services are available on weekends as well if you’re planning to hit the town. To stay updated with hours and operations check out their Instagram, Facebook or Website.

The exam period boundaries are restricted to:

East-West: Autoroute 15 to Papineau

North-South: Rue Jean-Talon to Verdun

If passengers would like to be dropped off outside of this designated area, they will drop them at a bus stop, metro, or train station near the edge of the boundary.

Also some key information:

  • If its an emergency, don’t wait for DriveSafe, call 911!
  • Opened alcohol is not permitted at anytime in a DriveSafe van.
  • Volunteers have total and absolute discretion as to who to allow into their van and where to go.
  • It is service aimed at bringing students home safely, not a taxi service for transporting you from place to place!

A HUGE thank you to all the volunteers who give their time to make their peers safer and happier.


If you live closer by and would like some company on your walk home, WalkSafe is the perfect resource. Just call  (514) 398-2498. They operate from:

9pm-midnight Sunday-Thursday

9pm-3am Friday and Saturday

Also you can check out their FAQ page if you have any questions.

As always, if there’s an emergency call 9-1-1 or if you’re on campus, McGill Security can give you a hand just call  (514)398-3000 for downtown campus and  514) 398-7777 for Mac Campus.

Stay safe and take care of yourselves during the busy season. You are almost done!!
