Douglas College pilots Safer Walk program at New Westminster campus

Want some friendly company when you walk at night between the New Westminster campus and the SkyTrain station?

Douglas College is piloting a SkyTrain Safer Walk program for students and employees heading to the New Westminster SkyTrain station.

From Monday to Friday, Nov. 4-Dec. 16, students and employees will be offered optional escorted trips to the station by a uniformed security officer.

The walks will depart every 30 minutes from 7pm to 11pm, leaving from the SkyTrain Safer Walk table in the College’s main concourse near the West entrance of the campus.

Douglas College will gather feedback and review participation levels during the trial period in order to gauge the program’s popularity and effectiveness.
