TRANSPORTATION AND PARKING
If REEP House for Sustainable Living is a short walk from your home that is the best way to get there.
We have a bike rack in front of the house for several bicycles. Since the house is very close to the Iron Horse Trail that may be a good choice.
Several GRT bus routes use Queen Street and have stops near Mill Street.
If you are driving, we encourage you to car pool with others you know are attending.
Since the house only has a few parking spots, we have arranged for parking a lot off Mitchell Street. Just walk across the grass to the back of the house or use the sidewalk on Queen to enter the front of the house.
Avoid parking in staff spaces in the Joseph Schneider Haus parking lot or you will get a ticket.
