Alternative transportation

Ride sharing/carpooling

Ride share programs can reduce campus traffic by providing students, faculty and staff a convenient tool to find other willing to share the commute. As a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) campus, Lakehead Orillia actively promotes the use of public transit (U-Pass) and carpooling.
