Did you know that the York University shuttle bus services will get you around different locations within and out of the campus? The buses also run to the GO train station and Keele to Glendon campus. Even though I had seen the shuttle buses, I didn’t know what they were for until one night I was going to walk home and my friend said, “why don’t you take the shuttle?” I was like, “what shuttle?” The ride turned out to be pretty good. If you’re feeling discouraged by that long walk to or from your class, just hop on the free shuttle bus!
Village Shuttle: This free service runs 7 days a week from 6p.m. to 2 a.m. and has three routes: Village Express, Village East and Village West. It takes members of the YorkU community from along a specific mostly to the residences and houses in the Village. You can pick it up right from Vari Hall after your evening classes and go straight home. Seating is based on a first come, first serve basis and each student is expected to show their YU card before entering the bus. The village shuttle schedule has a detailed list of all the route stops that you can print out.
Glendon-Keele Shuttle: If you’ve ever been to Glendon campus, you know it’s not always convenient to take regular transit there. The Keele-Glendon shuttle services allows members of the community to commute between the two campuses. Travel time is usually 30-45 minutes depending on weather and traffic conditions. You might want to start your trip half an hour early because you don’t want to be the last person to walk into class. You don’t want to blame it on the bus either, teachers kind of already know that trick. 😉
York University GO Train Shuttle: I have huge admiration for those who commute up to 2 hours to be at YorkU. There’s also a shuttle service for you all. The service takes you to the pick up and drop off location for the GO Train station that services the Barrie/Bradford-Union line. The name of this particular stop is 4747 Keele St. and a full schedule of the service, stops and times is online.
