Good idea, lol. If anyone lives around UofT's Scarborough Campus and has driveway room, I'd be willing to pay monthly :D . LMK!

It's pretty grimy, but my buddies would usually look for ongoing construction at any Seneca campus, and parked for free with the construction workers.

If they don't tow you, it's great... :lol:

My advice, don't drive to York, take the BUS!

Depending on where you live, it's TTC, YRT or GO Bus.

The best service/relatively cheaper is GO Bus for those who live in Scarborough!

Oh I see you live in Hamilton!

Ahhhhhh you COULD take the GO bus but it's gonna be alot heh!

If you do plan to drive and want to park on campus, you'd better go EARLY to get your parking pass, those lineups are horrible :( (Parking services is in PS2, the building just south of CCB)

Edit: errah, PS2 is now called the Willam Tell Center, or something like that, and CCB is just CB now.

Take GO bus the Highway 407 bus west bus from Hunter and James (the Go terminal). It goes to Keele Campus and save your money. If you want to save more money take the HSR there :)

I took the Bo Bus first year and let me tell you its a waste of money and time. It takes 2 1/2 hours each way for a grand total of 5 hours a day on a bus..... not fun. The Student ticked too was over 300 dollars which is more expensive than a months car insurance... i just need a place to park a vehicle not on campus for cheaper.

if u park somewhere near York for free, u're gonna have to walk for 5-15mins to get onto campus. u might be able to park at Shoreham Public School on Shoreham drive west of the campus. But if you're going to park there, you might as well be safe by parking at the plaza on Jane and Shoreham drive where there's a supermarket, royal bank and pharmaplus.

hope this helps, cheers
