Transportation Services encourage commuting to the University as an alternative to single occupant vehicles, and supports community members in taking public transit, carpooling, biking, walking or in-line skating. The goal is to reduce the demand for parking at York University by increasing awareness of alternative sustainable methods of transportation.
York University encourages transit riders to visit the websites of their specific transit service providers for the most up to date schedule and routing information.
Transportation Services actively works with our local public transit agencies to provide the best possible services to meet the transportation needs of the York University community. Furthermore, Transportation Services offers a complimentary shuttle service to the GO Train Station, a shuttle between the Glendon-Keele campus and Van Go - a mobility service for people with disabilities.
York University is one of the founding members of the Smart Commute - North Toronto, Vaughan (Smart Commute NTV), which is a non-profit with a mandate to raise awareness to reduce traffic congestion and to advocate for sustainable transportation.
At the 2012 Smart Commute Awards, York University was honoured as the top employer of the year, for outstanding achievement in the areas of commitment, leadership, innovation and results in sustainable transportation.
