Transit & Transportation
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.
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.
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.
