Transit & Transportation

Resources and suggestions for getting around town

Metro Transit

Several transit routes pass through, or next to, our university campuses including Route 10-Dalhousie, Route 18-Universities, Route 41-Dartmouth/Dalhousie and Route 42-Lacewood/Dalhousie.

Campus bus stops are highlighted on the Dalhousie Campus Map. You can also go to the Metro Transit website for information on routes and schedules.

The Universal Bus Pass (UPass) is a special transit pass available to Dalhousie students. The UPass sticker is placed directly on your DalCard. Simply show your card to ride Metro Transit buses and ferries, as well as Community Transit buses, from September to April. See the Dalhousie UPass website to learn more.

Ride Your Bike

Halifax is fortunate to have bicycle-friendly road conditions much of the year. Riding your bike is good for you, good for the environment and a great way to get to and from campus.

Campus bike racks are highlighted on the Dalhousie Campus Map. You can also go to the Cycling in HRM website for information on bicycle lanes and trails.

Parking on Campus

Parking on campus is limited. Parking Permits for each year (Sept.1 to Aug. 31) can be purchased at Security Services. These permits, which include annual, term, weekly or daily, are available at any time throughout the year. See Dalhousie Parking Services to learn more.

Campus parking is highlighted on the Dalhousie Campus Map.

During the academic year, Dalhousie Tiger Patrol offers a free shuttle bus service to all students, faculty and staff of Dalhousie University. Your DalCard will serve as your boarding pass, so make sure you don't forget it! See the Tiger Patrol webpage to learn more.
