Any student living on campus who has a vehicle or a student who drives to school will need a parking pass. Parking passes need to be renewed each academic year.
Parking permits must be properly displayed so that it is completely visible in your car’s windshield – hanging from the rear-view mirror or placed on your dash – driver’s side – with the face of the permit completely visible.
If you are visiting campus, it is necessary to obtain a visitor’s parking permit from the Security Office in the academic building. These permits are available free of charge for a stay of up to two weeks. A visitor’s permit will allow you to park in the Academic North parking lot overnight. Visitors must abide by the Parking Rules & Regulations. You can request a hard copy of the regulations from the Security Office.

The City of Hamilton has an extensive bus system, the HSR (Hamilton Street Railway), which provides accessible transit to the city. Redeemer is on a major bus route (44) that runs on Garner Road with a stop in front of the campus. As well, the Meadowlands Bus Terminal (at Golf Links Road and Martindale Road, across from the Tim Hortons) is within walking distance (20 minutes). The HSR will run a regular shuttle service to the Meadowlands on Saturdays – schedule TBA.
The HSR schedule is linked to Google Maps. Enter the start and end points of your trip (place names often work, e.g. “Redeemer University”) and press the bus icon to access the schedule and a time. This can be used for planning future trips as date and time are options as well! Please note that the Redeemer Shuttle schedule is not included.
GO transit is a network of buses and trains that provide connections throughout the Greater Toronto Area. Visit www.gotransit.com for service areas and schedules. Redeemer students are eligible for a student discount card for GO transit. A paper application is required and is available from the Registrar’s Office.
