Trent's accessible MV1 vehicle

Human Rights, Equity & Accessibility

MV-1 Transportation

In response to priorities established through Trent University’s Accessibility Audit (2012) of the built environment, the University has purchased an MV-1 vehicle in order to provide shuttle service for Trent students, staff and faculty with a range of disabilities, who might otherwise experience barriers to access in relation to challenges associated with distances, topography and pitch that are inherent in the physical landscape of our campus.

The MV1 shuttle is a complementary service that operates Monday – Friday between the hours of 8:15 am – 4:15 pm.  Two days notice is required.

If you require service after hours, please contact Campus Security at 705.748.1328.  The dispatcher will coordinate a taxi to assist you with your ride.  The cost of the evening ride is covered by the University. 

The MV-1 service is being coordinated by Print & Post. If you have any questions, please contact:
