Getting to York University's main campus:
On public transportation:
You can reach York's main campus using the TTC (see list of buses above). From downtown Toronto, you would usually go north on the University-Spadina subway line until you came to Downsview station, where you would transfer onto either the 196 (York University Express) bus, or the 106 bus. Both of these buses let you off just outside York Lanes, and a trip from downtown would take about an hour.
In a car:
You can reach York's main campus by car from highway 401 (via the Allen Road and Steeles) and highway 400 (via Steeles). There are entrances to the university from Keele, Jane, Steeles, and Finch. If you are coming from downtown, take the Allen Expressway to Finch Ave., go west on Finch to Keele St., and then north on Keele to the main York entrance.
The most straightforward entrance to the campus by car is from Keele St., which takes you straight towards York Lanes and the bus loop. The closest available parking is the York Lanes multi-level, pay parking garage, which is just to the north of York Lanes itself. You can ask for directions for parking at the Honour Court information centre, which is on your left after you have entered the campus from the Keele St. entrance.
For this and other parking options, please see the main York campus map for the location of lots that are accessible to visitors.
