Carpooling

SFU has two distinct carpooling programs: Rideshare is the carpooling program for students, and Carshare is the carpooling program for faculty/staff. For more information on the benefits of these programs please see their respective information/application sheets on our online forms page.

If you are looking for a carpooling partner, we are pleased to announce a new ride-sharing service and social venture run and led by SFU students and alumni www.go2gether.ca SFU is also a member of the Jack Bell Rideshare program accessible at www.ride-share.com

Walking

Although there are no sidewalks leading to the SFU campus, there is a well developed trail network in the Burnaby Mountain conservation area. These trails are not on SFU property and we recommend you use caution.
