Parking, transit and RideShare

Douglas College has two campuses located in the heart of Metro Vancouver:

  • New Westminster, 700 Royal Ave., one block north of the New Westminster SkyTrain station
  • Coquitlam, 1250 Pinetree Way, one kilometre north of Coquitlam Centre


Parking lots are at both campuses. You can pay for parking hourly, daily or by buying a semester pass. Passes are sold at the Cashier’s Office at the New Westminster Campus and at the Bookstore at the Coquitlam Campus. Metered parking is also available on streets adjacent to both campuses. Information on rates can be found here.

For more information on taking transit to campus, see Campus Facilities' page on transit.

RideShare is for students and employees to get to work or class in one of our fleet cars to carpool to campus. Registration for the program is free but there is a monthly fare based on kilometres travelled.
