Sustainable Transportation

Welland Transit bus in front of Welland Campus

Getting to and from campus can be a challenge, especially for students who are travelling to the Niagara-on-the-Lake Campus. Niagara College recognizes this, and there are many options to get to campus.

U-Pass

The Student Administrative Council (SAC) implemented the Universal Bus Pass in September 2007, providing direct links between all Niagara Region Transits including, Welland, St. Catharines, and Niagara Falls to the campus. As well, the U-Pass provides unlimited ridership on all transit systems (Welland, Niagara Falls and St. Catharines) saving students money for buying bus passes.

Taking the bus to and from school can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions associated with transportation, and so students take advantage of this U-Pass!

Keep an eye out for our new Transit Ambassadors around campus that can help you learn all about transit on campus! Be sure to watch the new Transit Etiquette video SAC has published as well!

Riding Bikes and Walking

Niagara College has many areas designated around the campus for bike racks. Take care while riding to the Glendale Campus, and be sure to wear a helmet and any other safety gear that you have. Riding bikes and walking provide an opportunity to exercise before and after a day of school, increases parking spaces, reduces road congestion, encourages others to do the same and leaves a smaller footprint!

You can now sign out bicycle repair kits from Athletic ServicesĀ at the Welland and Niagara-on-the-Lake campus! The bicycle repair kits include a tire pump, patches, chain links, and other useful tools to help you fix your bike!

Carpooling

Carpooling with friends, employees and classmates is a great way to reduce single drivers on the road to school, reduce congestion and help others arrive on campus. Carpooling opportunities can begin within the classroom, and Niagara College encourages students and employees to help others.
