OC Transpo Routes 111 and 88 stop at Heron / Heron Bridge and connect with Algonquin College. Catch Routes 111 and 88 at Baseline Station, at Billings Bridge mall or along Meadowlands Drive.

All buses stop on the west side of Campus Avenue. The closest stop to CUAG is 6612, just before the Residence Commons Building. The next closest stop is 5813, across from the O-train station. The closest Para Transpo stop is 20 (Northern Residences), in front of Leeds House residence.


The O-Train Trillium Line (Line 2) serves Carleton from the Bayview and Greenboro transit stations, with stops at Carling and Confederation. The Trillium Line (Line 2) will be closed from 2020-2022. OC Transpo has replaced the Trillium Line (Line 2) with R2 bus service running the entire line and stopping at all Line 2 stations. Bus fares are the same as for the O-Train.


There is a dedicated bike lane on Colonel By Drive with access to the campus at Hartwell Locks. There are bike racks outside the St. Patrick’s Building.


Take Bronson Avenue to the Sunnyside Avenue entrance to the campus. Turn into campus and go straight, crossing the bridge over the O-Train tracks. At the stop sign, make a slight jog to the right and drive ahead into Lot P6. During fall 2020, you can park in this lot for free. You can also park in the nearby parkade (Lot P18) for free.


Lot P6 is the closest parking lot to the St. Patrick’s Building, which houses the gallery. You can also park in the nearby Lot P18 parkade. Here is a parking map

Visitor parking rates

Parking is free on campus during the winter of 2021, so don’t worry about the “pay and display” or “permit holders only” signs in Lot P6 and Lot P18!
