Pick-up Locations

For most day trips, we pick up at 3 locations:

Some trips may also pick up at : 

Be early!

Ensure you arrive at least 10 minutes early, to have enough time to find/load the bus and pay for parking.

Our buses leave at the time posted, and we won't wait for you. We've been known to leave Assistant Bus Captains behind!


You are responsible for any parking costs, and rates may change without notice.

The Merton and York Mills lots are automated and accept cash or credit cards only. There is no change machine, so remember to bring loonies and toonies! It's a good idea to have change should the machine have trouble reading your card.

Finding the bus

We use Coach Canada for day trips. Buses are usually white or red,  but sometimes have other branding. Check the sign in the front window for "North Toronto Ski Club", "Bus #", or ask if you're not sure. 

 Note that we often share pick up locations with other groups, so make sure you're on the right NTSC bus!


See the Google map

Pick up is directly in front of the NTSC clubhouse at 214 Merton Street.

Merton Street is the first traffic light south of Davisville Avenue, and the clubhouse is located between Yonge and Mount Pleasant. 


If you are taking public transit, we recommend that you board at York Mills instead. This location is several blocks away from Davisville TTC station, and it can be a long walk with equipment.


Parking garage/lots are available at 30 and 68 Merton, just east of Yonge. Rumor has it that they tow cars in this area!

30 Merton

New for 2019/20, the garage is under different management, using pay & display. You must pay for parking before you board the bus, and place the ticket on your dash.

Rates are now $3 until 6:00 PM. Remember to add time if you plan to stay longer.

68 Merton

Rates are $3 until 7PM.


See the Google map.  

Pick up is on the east side of Yonge Street, just north of York Mills. On the return trip, drop-off is on the west side of Yonge.

Note: Other clubs also use this location as a pick-up point, so make sure you get on the right bus!


This is the recommended location if you are taking public transit/TTC, and is easily accessible from York Mills TTC station.


Parking is available on the north-west corner of Yonge and York Mills (at 4050 Yonge Street). The current weekend parking charge is approximately $5/day (until 7 PM).

HIGHWAY 7 & 400

See the Google map

Pick up is the east carpool lot located on the south side of Hwy 7, west of the 400 and east of Colossus Drive.  

The carpool lot has an east and west side, separated by Colossus Drive. The bus will only stop on the east side of the bridge (closest to the highway). If you park on the other side, you'll either miss the bus or have to walk about 500m around to the east side.

Note: Other clubs also use this location as a pick-up point, so make sure you get on the right bus!


Park on the east side of the bridge closest to the 400.  

When approaching from 400 North or Highway 7 Westbound, you can't turn on to Colossus Drive. Turn left at Famous Drive instead, and go around the movie theater to access the lot.

On Selected trips only

Royal York Hotel (Union Station)

See the Google map 

This pick-up point is only available for selected trips, typically when we have a multi-bus Saturday day trip. It's easily accessible from Union station (TTC/Go Transit/UP Express), across the street. This bus will pick up here and at our other day trip stops, but will not stop at Merton.

Pick up location is on York Street (the west side of the hotel), north of Front St. Look for the Porter/Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport shuttle stop.

 Do not go to the Royal York TTC station, which is about 45 minutes away.

QEW / BRONTE RD, Oakville

See the Google map 

This pick-up point is only available for selected trips, typically when the resort is south of Toronto (ie: Ellicotville, United States)

Pick up is in the carpool lot, south of the QEW / Bronte Rd. off-ramp.
