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

Due to COVID-19, Memorial University is following precautions implemented through the Environmental Health and Safety plan and government regulations to ensure safety of our students. Until further notice, the shuttle bus is only operating for the Ocean Sciences Centre and Signal Hill Campus. If you are a student at these locations and wish to receive the current operating schedule, please contact the coordinator for your location. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

 Terms of Use

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. There are 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.

See Public Transportation above to learn about bike racks available on public transportation.

If you don’t have a bike, you can rent one from Bikeshare n' Repair

 

Carpooling

The use of carpools on campus is encouraged. Two or more users may apply for a single permit at the appropriate fee for use in a carpool.
