Transit to take you anywhere you want to go.
Toronto and the GTA are closely connected through intertwining subways, bus routes, bike trails and walking paths. Students living on- and off-campus can travel easily within and between all three University of Toronto campuses.
The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) is a quick, convenient and safe way to get around Toronto. As the third-largest public transit system in North America, the TTC services some 1.5 million people in the GTA every day. Subways, streetcars, buses and a specialized Wheel-Trans for those who require accessible transportation buzz around the city. All three campuses are serviced by buses and street cars. U of T Mississauga students travel to the downtown Toronto St. George campus easily and without charge via the University shuttle bus, and they can also travel for free on the local Mississauga transit between the months of September and April. All U of T students are eligible for a Post-Secondary Student TTC metro pass for travel throughout the city.
All three campuses also have beautiful, well-lit walking paths linking buildings. In the spring, summer and fall, cycling is very popular way to get around. Toronto has designated bike lanes, bike rentals and “ring-on-a-stick” parking spots virtually everywhere. Mississauga’s new Cycling Master Plan involves adding over 900 kilometres of on- and off-road cycling routes to the city. U of T also has student-run bike repair shops and free short-term bike rentals, and most campus buildings have areas to safely lock your bicycle.
There are safe and convenient student parking lots and parking pass options available for students who drive to campus.
