Transportation

As Memorial’s population grows and new buildings are constructed, parking on campus has become more of a challenge. Now is a good time to rethink your mode of transportation. Below are some options and information to help you decide which mode may work for you.

 
Memorial University Shuttle Service

Memorial University offers a shuttle service for its students, faculty and staff between several of its locations. The shuttle service currently stops at the St. John’s Campus, the Marine Institute, the Ocean Sciences Centre and the Battery Facility. Users are responsible to familiarize yourself with the daily schedule and the Terms of Use which include the list of holidays when service is not available. The Terms of Use and schedule are subject to change.

Any user may sign up for shuttle email notifications by emailing shuttle@mun.ca. Users should check their email prior to use.

IMPORTANT SHUTTLE NOTICE - Nov. 14, 2017

Starting Tuesday, Nov. 14, a 15-passenger vehicle will run during the peak hours of 7:45 a.m. to 9:45 a.m. and 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.  Users should note, the seven-passenger van will continue to be used for the remaining daily shuttle runs. It is anticipated that this schedule will remain in effect until the new 24-passenger bus that’s been ordered arrives. Users may have to adjust schedules to accommodate the capacity. We ask that you please keep this in mind when planning your trips during this interim period. There may be some changes to the schedule as we attempt to offer shuttle service to all sites as effectively and efficiently as possible. Individuals using the shuttle service are responsible for familiarizing themselves with the terms of use and shuttle schedule. Please direct questions or concerns to shuttle@mun.caA further update on the scheduled arrival of the new vehicle will be provided in early December.

 

Public Transportation

Taking a bus to work requires much less energy than a vehicle with one driver going the same distance. There are 11 bus routes that stop at Memorial (routes 1, 2, 9, 10, 13, 14, 15, 16, 20, 24, 26). Locations of bus stops on or near the St. John’s campus include in front of the University Centre, near the Health Sciences Centre, on Elizabeth Avenue and on Allandale Road. For a complete list of routes, visit www.metrobus.com/schedules.asp.

All buses now have bike racks, available from May to October, to transport your bike. Go to metrobus.com/bikeracks/xhtml/ for more information. Some routes also offer accessible service. Get your Metrobus pass at The Attic on the third floor of the University Centre.

 

Cycling 

Memorial wants to encourage cycling as a way to get to and move around campus. Twenty new bike racks were recently installed bringing the total to 54 bike racks on campus, with many in sheltered areas. For a complete list of bike rack locations, visit www.mun.ca/sustain/initiatives/bikeracklocations.php

Five bike lockers, located between the Science and Chemistry buildings are available to rent by the semester. For more information, visit www.mun.ca/sustain/bikelockers.php.
