Bikes at Interurban campus

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…

Reallocation of Bus-Service Hours to help with Interurban Pass-Ups (#8 and #39)

February 25, 2014 - 8:19 am • Ancillary Services RSS

B.C. Transit is rolling out changes that include service to Bear Mountain and Westhills, a summer connection to Thetis Lake, and measures to ease the problem of “pass-ups” — people left behind due to crowded buses. Construction also begins next week on bus and bike priority lanes on Douglas Street. Langford Mayor Stew Young has been calling for B.C. Transit to add a Bear Mountain bus. He applauded the Victoria Regional Transit Commission’s approval of the route, which will also cover the fast-growing Westhills community in Langford.
