Parking and Transit


Parking is available on campus for students, faculty, staff and visitors.  The cost is $1 per day and it gives you unlimited parking for 24 hours once you have purchased a daily pass from an automated machine at the entrance to paid lots.  Please ensure you place your purchased receipt on the dash of your vehicle.

Parking passes are available for $50 (plus HST) a semester and can be purchased at the CBU Security Office from 8am to 4pm.  This pass lets you park all day and every day, anywhere on campus. This will probably be the best $50 you spend especially if you are a commuter student.

Bus Service

Cape Breton Transit stops approximately every hour at CBU on route to both to Sydney and Glace Bay.  Check the Route 1 schedule for exact times, stops and transfer locations. On campus, the main departure point for buses is immediately in front of the Transportation Centre next to the Canada Games Complex.

Don’t forget service times change on weekends and holidays so make sure you double check before you head out. Transit fare is $2 for students or an unlimited monthly pass can be purchased for $60 through the Students’ Union.
