Did you know that our new campus is located on the Central Valley Greenway? Ride your bike to the event and The Bicycle Valet will hook you up with FREE, safe bicycle parking - valet style of course! Find them at east entrance, by the Wilson Arts Plaza.
The University is situated between two Skytrain stations -- it’s a 13-minute walk from Main Street-Science World station on the Expo Line, and a 12-minute walk from VCC Clark on the Millennium Line. And, the No. 84 goes right by our doors.
On Saturday, October 28 from 10am-6pm, we'll be running a free shuttle from both the Main Street-Science World station and the VCC Clark station via Whistler Rides. Shuttles will run every 20 minutes beginning at 10am. Pick-up and drop-off at Emily Carr will be in the parking lot at the rear of the campus. The final shuttles will depart the University at 6pm. (*Note: drivers will break after the 3pm drop-off at Emily Carr and will resume pick-up at stations at 3:40pm.)
Pick-up from VCC station will be located at the south east side of East 6th Avenue at Keith Drive.
