To encourage staff, faculty and students to take a sustainable mode of transportation, Security & Parking Services has
introduced the Flex Pass- a ten visit reloadable parking pass. Flex Passes expire 12 months from the date of purchase, and
can be used for many lots on campus. For the fair-weather cyclist or the potential walker who occasionally has off campus
meetings, or for anyone who drives to campus nine times or less each month. The Flex Pass provides a more sustainable option
for on-campus parking.
Where to Park:
All gated lots with the exception of Lot A, Lot B & Lot D.
$100 for 10 entry/exits
- Flex passes will only be issued to a staff, faculty or student of the University.
Any external users, such as contractors and/ or consultants, must either apply for a commercial
permit or pay the daily rate for parking in the visitor lot of their choice.
- The applicant cannot possess another McMaster parking permit, with the exception of a carpool
permit. If the applicant already has another permit at the time of application for a Flex Pass, they
must surrender their existing permit in order to obtain a Flex Pass. If the applicant possesses a
Main Campus permit and wants to try another sustainable mode of transportation while occasionally
using a Flex Pass, then their permit may be put on hold for a minimum of one month to a maximum of twelve months.
- Purchase and/or renewal of flex passes are limited to only 10 visits per month (every 30 days).
How to Purchase:
Attend the Parking Services office at any location (ET Clarke Centre or Campus Store in Gilmour Hall). Make payment by credit, debit, cheque, etc.
