Active Transportation

The benefits of active transportation include saving money on transportation, better health and a more positive commuter experience. We're proud of our bike and pedestrian-friendly campus, designed to provide safe, convenient movement for students walking to and from the college or between classes. Mohawk Sustainability offers annual events and programs to support active transportation and cycling.

Secure Bike Parking Facility

Need a safe place to park your bike on campus? The Fennell Campus is home to a 48-spot secure bike parking facility. This facility is available to all Mohawk staff and students who cycle to campus.

Shared Mobility

Shared mobility platforms allow people the freedom to access a car, bicycle or other transportation mode only when they need it, creating more flexibility in the way they get around. Shared mobility reduces or eliminates the need for ownership, and is a more affordable option for many people. Mohawk's Bike Loan Program and on-campus Zipcar vehicles are both examples of shared mobility at the college.

Bike Loan Program

Mohawk College Library has 13 bikes to loan to Mohawk College students and staff. They are all 21 gear mountain bikes. The sizes vary slightly — check the link below for details.

  • Loans are for 3 days, this can be extended depending on demand and availability.
  • You must wear a helmet – yours or borrow one from us.
  • You must present current Mohawk ID each time you borrow a bike.


Legal stuff:For your first loan, please see library staff to get a bike loan agreement. Once you’ve filled out a form, they will keep it on file, you only have to do it once.

Visit Borrow a Bike on the Library Website for more details:

Zipcar

Carpooling

Want to save money on gas and parking? Form a carpool and take turns driving to campus. Parking pass splitting is available and applies to all parking spaces at Fennell and Stoney Creek campuses. 

Need some support with forming a carpool? Worried about how you'd get home in an emergency? View carpooling tips and resources.

How carpool parking works

  • Share your parking permit with up to three others by adding additional license plate numbers to the permit. A total of four license plates can be added to a single permit.
  • Only one registered vehicle may use the permit to park on campus at any one time. 
  • If you need your own vehicle on campus occasionally, you can pay the daily rate. You will still save money if this happens infrequently.


Visit the Parking and ONE card office for more information, or call Parking Services at 905-575-2121.

 

Electric vehicle charging stations

Electric Vehicle Charging

Mohawk has 16 electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at the Fennell and Stoney Creek campuses. Charging is free for parking permit holders. EV owners are allowed to use a charging station for up to 4 hours at a time. After 4 hours, users must move their vehicle to allow others to use the station.
