The School of Nursing can assist students studying at the Peterborough campus with arranging transportation to and from clinical placements. We offer a taxi pass program in collaboration with a local insured transportation agency. The TFSON Clinical Taxi Pass fees are significantly discounted rates to keep the costs reasonable for students.
Students will pay a flat fee upfront each semester to activate the taxi pass. Taxi passes typically go on sale the month before the clinical term begins. The Nursing office will notify students when they are available. The value of the pass is set based on the number of days students are in the clinical setting per week: One day per week clinical course (NURS 1020, 2021): $ 200 (tax included) Two days per week clinical course (NURS 3020, 3021): $ 300 (tax included) Students are required to make their own travel arrangements in NURS 2020 and level 4000 clinical courses. Two pick-up/drop-off locations are available: one for Traill College (downtown Peterborough) and one for Symons Campus (Main Campus).
It is the student's responsibility to arrive at the pick-up location(s) on time and communicate with the school when plans change. Trent/Fleming School of Nursing will not be responsible for missed rides.
