How to Get to Seneca@York

We know that one of the most stressful experiences of starting a new semester, is figuring out how to get there. Transit never quite tells you exactly where you should be, and how to get there. So, we put together a master-post of every possible transportation method that will get you to the Seneca@York Campus, and exactly how they can be accessed.
