Toronto Transit Commission
The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) operates buses, streetcars and subways throughout the City of Toronto, with connections to public transportation in neighbouring municipalities. For information on bus and subway routes throughout the Greater Toronto Area, please call 416-393-4636 (416-393-INFO), visit the TTC website or pick up a TTC Ride Guide at any subway station.
UTSC is accessible from downtown Toronto by TTC.
Mississauga Transit provides bus service to UTM and the surrounding area. Full-time students at UTM are eligible for a U-Pass, which is a bus pass that allows unlimited ridership for the academic year. The cost of the U-Pass is included in your tuition fees.
UTM is accessible from downtown by a combination of TTC and Mississauga Transit or from the St. George Campus with the Inter Campus Shuttle.
Inter Campus Shuttle
The University operates an Inter Campus Shuttle Bus between the St. George Campus and UTM. UTM students do not pay a fare to ride the shuttle. St. George Campus students must purchase tickets, which are available on campus.
There are also Alternate Transportation options to UTM, should you be travelling during hours when the shuttle is not operational or from somewhere other than the St. George Campus.
Driving in Ontario
International students are considered residents of Ontario for driver licensing purposes. If you have a valid driver's license from another country or an International Driving Permit, you may drive with this license for up to sixty days. After this initial period, you must obtain an Ontario driver's license.
If you are bringing a car into Ontario, you must obtain Ontario license plates for it within thirty days of your arrival. You will also need appropriate insurance that is valid in Ontario. This can be fairly expensive.
Please see the Ministry of Transportation website if you have any questions concerning insurance regulations or driver or vehicle licensing.
Living in Toronto means living in a city of vibrant neighbourhoods. You can imagine Toronto as a quilt with different cultures contributing to its fabric.
