Shuttle FAQs

  • How much will it cost to use the shuttle?

    A one-way ride costs $5. Monthly passes offering unlimited ridership cost $50. The shuttle does not accept cash fares. All transactions will run through the onecard. Paper tickets for visitors and guests will be available for purchase at Sheridan’s Bookstores.

  • How can I purchase shuttle passes?

    Shuttle passes will be available for purchase August 15, 2019, through onecard OneWeb site. You will need to load the funds onto your card and then select 'Event' to complete your ticket purchase. Instructions for purchasing will be available August 15, 2019 on the Shuttle website.

  • Who can ride the shuttle?

    The shuttle is available for students and employees (through use of the onecard) and may be used by visitors and guests (through use of paper tickets, available at the Bookstore).

  • Why is there only service between Davis and Trafalgar?

    Given that travel by public transit to our HMC Campus from Davis or Trafalgar Campus is frequent and affordable, this pilot will be limited to a direct run that goes back and forth between our Davis and Trafalgar Campuses. Current travel between Davis and Trafalgar requires the use of two different municipal transit services, making it costlier and time consuming. As the two campuses with student residences and the largest number of classes, better connecting Trafalgar and Davis is our top priority.

  • How will the shuttle benefit me/Why should I use the shuttle?

    The cost to travel between Davis and Trafalgar Campus using municipal transit is $9.65 each way, for a 90-minute ride involving two different transit companies. Using the Sheridan shuttle, the trip will take 45-60 minutes (depending on traffic) and will cost $5 each way, with no need to switch buses. The shuttle is a purely optional service.

  • Will you be adding more shuttle routes?

    The new Sheridan shuttle service will run as a direct route, between the Trafalgar and Davis Campuses, on a four-month trial basis. Should sufficient demand exist, the trial will be extended until April 30, 2020, using the same, single route. Given that travel to and from our HMC Campus by public transit is frequent and affordable, this pilot will be limited to a direct run between our Davis and Trafalgar Campuses.

  • How do I travel to and from HMC?

    Travel to HMC Campus in Mississauga from Davis and Trafalgar is serviced by Oakville Transit, Brampton Transit and Mi-Way. Please check their sites for current schedules and fares.

  • Why can’t we have the UPass that was promised in the referendum?

    In January 2019, the provincial government announced the Student Choice Initiative, which restricts what types of ancillary fees may be deemed mandatory and enables students to choose which non-compulsory student fees they want to pay. On April 1, it was made clear that Sheridan could not uphold the results of the referendum and adopt the U-Pass as a compulsory ancillary fee, as the institution did not meet the required timelines to have signed contracts with municipal transit providers to deliver the service.

  • Are there discounts available for municipal/public transit services?

    Sheridan’s municipal transit providers include GO Transit, Mi-Way, Brampton Transit, Oakville Transit and ZUM. Please visit the relevant transit provider webpages to learn of any discounts that may be available.

  • How can Sheridan offer the shuttle when students get to decide where to spend their student fees?

    The shuttle is a purely optional service that is paid for by users on a fee-for-service basis. No student fees are being collected to fund the service.

    Yes, the bus has a lift installed, to assist passengers with mobility devices, such as manual and power wheelchairs and scooters, with entry to and exit from the shuttle.
