U.B. provides dedicated bus transportation from various parts of the country to the main campus in Belmopan throughout each August and January semesters. These services bring students safely to the main campus in Belmopan with the peace of mind of having space, not needing to book tickets and enjoying a university atmosphere among lecturers, staff and students only.
Which bus line service are you interested in?
Students living in Corozal and Orange Walk usually rent rooms, apartments or houses in Belmopan to take their classes during the week. Those students can use the special UB Student Bus Run offered by the Valencia’s bus company to come to Belmopan at the start of the week and to return home at the end of the week. This run brings students to the Belmopan Campus every Monday morning in time for classes and takes them back home in the north leaving campus on Friday afternoons after classes and campus activities. The bus leaves the Corozal Bus Terminal and heads south on the main highway into Orange Walk Town to make a stop at the Orange Walk Bus Terminal. From the Orange Walk Bus Terminal, the bus continues heading south taking the Burrell Boom Cut and heading to Belmopan. Students living in villages along the path can travel, as the bus makes stops.
Students living in Belize City or in the villages along the George Price Highway between Belize City and Belmopan can travel to the Belmopan Campus from Monday to Friday on the daily UB Bus Run offered by Westline Bus Company. That dedicated bus service leaves from the Business Campus in West Landivar in Belize City and then picks up students at the bus terminal in Belize City and finally at the exit of the city in front of the La Popular Bakery after the Hand Monument. There are usually two of these busses every day. The first bus arrives on campus just before 8am. There are other buses that leave a little later to accommodate students who do not have 8am classes. The buses leave at different times from campus to return to Belize City allowing students to enjoy campus activities and then return home safely and in comfort.
Students living along the western corridor from Benque Viejo del Carmen to Belmopan can also make use of dedicated buses from the Westline Bus Company that travel to our Belmopan Campus every day. The buses all leave from the BECOL basketball court in Benque and then pick up students at the bus stops along the highway in Succotz. Students living in San Ignacio can catch these busses at any bus stop along the Joseph Andrews Drive in San Ignacio, at the Welcome Center and at bus stops along the George Price Highway in Santa Elena. These busses also pick up students at any of the official bus stops in any of the villages on the highway to Belmopan. These buses leave at different times from Benque in the mornings and from Campus in the evenings allowing students to arrive on campus depending on the time of their first class and leaving campus after participating in campus activities.
Each semester official schedules of the departure and arrival times of the UB Buses are posted on this site and are sent to students via campus mail. These updated schedules also indicate the prices of the bus runs which are comparable to the price of express bus runs on the open market but include the extra service of bringing students all the way to campus.
