Underground parkade – 700 Royal Ave. (entrance off Victoria Street)
Carnarvon parkade – 720 Carnarvon St.
There are additional parking options (both are paid hourly) for New Westminster students:
Surface lot – 1250 Pinetree Way
Underground parkade – 1250 Pinetree Way – hourly parking only, no student passes
Town Centre Park – Lots A and E, 1299 Pinetree Way
This lot is north of the Coquitlam Campus across Pinetree Way. Turn right on Pinewood Avenue. This lot is for student pass holders only. Pass holders must display passes on your dash or rearview mirror. Tickets issued due to failure to display a pass will not be considered for refunds.
The Douglas College RideShare program is an opportunity for students and employees to get to work or class in one of our fleet cars or put your own group together to carpool to campus.
Registration for the RideShare program is free. If you decide to ride in one of our vans, there is a monthly fare (based on kilometres travelled) but no long-term contract.
The system can also match you up with other people who are looking for a ride to campus if you’re interested in carpooling.
Every Douglas College student who is registered for three credits or more gets a U-Pass BC each semester. U-Pass BC is a discounted student transit pass that provides unlimited, all-zone access to TransLink bus, SkyTrain and SeaBus services, as well as discounts on the West Coast Express,for a fraction of what the public pays.
PLEASE NOTE: In 2014 U-Pass BC will be replaced by TransLink's Compass Card. Post-secondary institutions in the U-Pass BC program will begin to receive Compass Cards in a staggered approach. Douglas is expected to move to the Compass Card system later in 2014. For details see Compass Card info.
For more detailed transit information, bus schedules and routes, check out TransLink’s Trip Planner and enter one of the campus addresses (New Westminster: 700 Royal Ave.; Coquitlam: 1250 Pinetree Way) as the destination.
