Transportation & Parking
Camosun encourages and supports the use of alternative modes of transportation to campus both in support of Go Green initiatives and because of the limited availability of parking spaces. Check out all the options for getting here green. Public transportation, bicycle and carpooling to campus are all viable options which reduce parking congestion and help the environment. If bringing a personal vehicle to Campus is a necessity, parking is provided on a first-come, first-served basis—parking spaces cannot be guaranteed or reserved. Information on Parking and Rates
Camosun has adopted a Transportation and Parking Plan which addresses a variety of transportation issues identified by the Camosun community. Camosun is committed to reducing the amount of single occupancy vehicles coming to campus though encouraging alternative modes. Camosun is planning for the future.
Parking and Transportation needs your help to advance the ideas developed in our Transportation and Parking Plan. We’d love to have your energy and enthusiasm! Get involved...

BC Transit potential job action January 22
Posted Fri, 11 Jan 2013
BC Transit drivers are planning job action on Tuesday, January 22, which would result in no buses running that day. When planning in-class activities, please be mindful that students may have difficulty getting to class.
If you are a transit rider, please start planning about how you will get to Camosun that day, as the college will remain open. This is a great opportunity to try out other ways of getting here, including ridesharing and cycling .
Camosun College takes proactive steps for improving service with BC Transit. In December, the college made a presentation to the BC Transit Commission outlining opportunities for improved service to both our campuses. Later that meeting BC Transit agreed to plan to increase their budget and service hours to Camosun next year.
