Western’s Accessible Transportation Service (WATS) is provided by Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) in partnership with Voyageur Transportation. WATS is for travelling among university locations only, which includes travelling between campuses.
Students may use WATS for purposes related to their program of study and other University business. For example, students may use WATS to travel between classes, to meet with their instructors (or teaching assistants, Financial Aid advisors, etc.), to go to the library or book store, or to get lunch between classes. In the event of multiple requests for rides at a particular time, priority will be given to students who are travelling to exams and classes.
Students who require the use of WATS for disability-related reasons must contact an SSD counsellor and provide documentation of their disability. Students may book an in-person or phone appointment with a counsellor by calling 519-661-2147.
