Information on possible traffic disruption May 22-25
May 18, 2018
The University has been made aware that CUPE 3903 affiliated workers are intending to disrupt traffic moving onto campus through most of the gates and this disruption is expected to continue for the duration of next week. It is expected that there may be particularly long delays at those gates that do remain open to traffic.
We want to make sure we do everything we can to mitigate the impact of these actions on you our students, who need to be able to get to campus to attend classes. For all those who can, we strongly advise that you use the subway/public transit to get to campus.
If you need to drive, and already have a York parking pass, please park your car at a lot off campus or at a subway station and then take public transit to campus. You may consider utilizing TTC's commuter parking lots, such as the Pioneer Village Station on the north side of Steeles Avenue. There is also TTC parking available at the Highway 407 Station, and at Finch West Station. For more information on TTC parking options and rates, please visit the TTC website.
The University will provide a pro-rated credit on your Parking account if you do not use your York parking permit for the week. Please apply for your credit at the Parking Services office, located in the William Small Centre, or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Costs you incur associated with parking and public transit in excess of the cost of your York parking permit are eligible for reimbursement. A reimbursement process is being developed and will be communicated as soon as it is finalized.
Please make sure you give yourself extra time for the commute to campus. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
