Does the institution participate in a car sharing program?:
Yes

A brief description of the car sharing program:

Humber College has a partnership with Enterprise CarShare. Faculty, staff and students can become members of Enterprise CarShare for only $1 and drive cars starting at $6/hr, gas and insurance included. Enterprise CarShare is an automated way to rent a vehicle by the hour, the day, or overnight. Vehicles are available 24/7 and a variety of makes and models are parked on Humber Campus (North and Lakeshore) as well as throughout the GTA. The cars can be picked up in front of the North Campus student residence in Parking Lot 1 and just south of the walkway connecting Lakeshore West to Lakeshore East in Parking Lot 1.


Does the institution offer preferential parking or other incentives for fuel efficient vehicles?:
Yes

A brief description of the incentives for fuel efficient vehicles:

Electric vehicles get preferential parking on the first floor, closest to the exit in the new parking garage, as well as 4 hours of free charging. Carpool vehicles get preferential parking close to entrances at most buildings with adjacent parking lots.


Does the institution have one or more Level 2 or Level 3 electric vehicle recharging stations that are accessible to student and employee commuters?:
Yes

A brief description of the electric vehicle recharging stations:

Humber College opened 16 new EV chargers in 2019 at North Campus, and there currently exist 4 at Lakeshore campus. At Humber, all the EV chargers are Level 2 charging stations - they provide up to an 80 per cent charge after four hours. As a result, Humber will encourage drivers to share charging stations by moving their EVs to a regular, parking spot after four hours of free charging. All EV charging stations are accessible to student and employee commuters as they are in open parking lot spaces.

Does the institution have other programs or initiatives to encourage more sustainable modes of transportation and/or reduce the impact of student and employee commuting?:
Yes

A brief description of other programs or initiatives to encourage more sustainable modes of transportation and/or reduce the impact of student and employee commuting:

With nearly 80,000 full and part-time students travelling to and from campus on a regular basis, transportation management is a major focus at Humber. We actively support energy-efficient forms of transportation, such as public transit, bicycle commuting and carpooling. By managing transportation demand; reducing traffic congestion; and enhancing campus security, we are steadily improving our environmental outcomes and making our campus cleaner and safer for the Humber community.
We are working with Smart Commute to improve sustainable transportation for the Humber Community with a new and improved carpool plan.
Humber is actively involved in strategic planning with Metrolinx to bring a Light Rail Transit (LRT) system to campus in the near future.
The new bus loop at the North campus sees over 1,200 buses each day. The bus loop has improved the transportation network and created more space for pedestrian walkways.
