Question:  Is there a special discounted rate for permits since many will not be on campus as often as they would be if not for COVID-19?

Answer:  There is no special rate or discount for those who are not on campus as often as they would normally be.    All lots will be operational, maintained and available in September.  In some cases, it will be preferable to use Pay & Display instead of purchasing a permit this year.  For those who plan to be on campus at least one day a week on average, a permit is often the recommended choice.  On the other hand, for those who are on campus 5 days per week, purchasing an unreserved permit, for example, results in a cost of only $3.23 per day, compared to the daily Pay & Display rate of $15

Question: If individuals don’t purchase a pass at the start of the year, because they may continue to study/work at home, can they purchase it later in the year at a pro-rated price?

Answer: Yes, remaining permits can be purchased throughout the year and would be prorated on a monthly basis.

Question: I’m a UTM student.  Will I be charged for the U-Pass or shuttle?

Answer: The U-Pass service, offering unlimited fare-free rides on MiWay (Mississauga Transit), will be maintained for UTM students (excluding the MMPA and MFAcc programs) through the traditional academic year of September 2020 through April 2021 by the University of Toronto Mississauga Students’ Union and the University of Toronto Mississauga Association for Graduate Students.

MiWay, Brampton Transit, Oakville Transit, GO Transit and the Toronto Transit Commission municipal services are expected to continue operations. The Brampton Transit express service between the Brampton Gateway Terminal and UTM is suspended.

The UTM shuttle services to/from the St. George campus and Sheridan College is suspended through the traditional academic year of September 2020 through April 2021 and no related fee for that period will be assessed.
