Improvements to bus loop and visitor parking
SOUTH CAMPUS BUS LOOP AND VISITOR PARKING LOT OPENING September 04!
In September, a new short-term parking lot and Bus Loop will open on the South campus in the area formerly known as the “Inner Lots”. The new arrangement will relieve congestion and increase safety in the Arrival Court.
Bus Loop: Located beside the Athletics Center, the new bus loop features bus shelters (to be installed soon) and enhanced safety features. The loop will be used by:
Durham Region Transit
Please note: The bus loop is for buses only – private vehicles are not permitted.
Short-Term Parking: Located between the bus loop and South Residences, our new Visitor parking lot features 113 spaces and 5 accessible spaces for short-term parking (four-hour maximum stay weekdays, unlimited evenings and weekends). Pay-and-display parking meters are available and are required at all times. Please see the Parking Services website at http://www.utsc.utoronto.ca/~parking/rates.html for rate information.
Passenger Pick-up and Drop-off Facilities: The Main Entrance circle is still available for drivers to pick up and drop off passengers. With the new arrangement, drivers exiting the circle must now turn right at the Student Center and use the Military Trail exit just past the Athletics Center. Drivers are asked to please drive slowly and watch for pedestrians, particularly at the newly-added pedestrian crosswalks.
NEW: The roadway parallel to Military Trail near the Athletics Center and Student Center is now a pick-up and drop-off zone. Please observe all road markings, speed limits and stop signs, watching for pedestrians at all times.
NEW! Pedestrian Ramp: A new accessible pedestrian ramp allows easy access to the Bus Loop from the level of the Student Center, Bladen Wing and Arts & Administration Buildings. The ramp is located between the B-wing and Athletics Center and leads directly to the sidewalks near the ARC, Bus Loop and the parking lots.
