Students who live in a city must make some sacrifices. One of these sacrifices is cheap and accessible parking. McGill does not see it as their responsibility to provide parking, given that there is so much cheap public transportation available. Since the school is not helpful, it is advisable to take that hint and not bother bringing a car, at least for the first year. If, in the course of getting an apartment, an affordable space comes up, it might be worth looking into, but owning a car and parking is pretty excessive and indulgent for students living in this city.
Permits are reasonably priced in comparison to other city schools, but again the availability of spots is low. Students with a car are often asked by friends to take them on errands, adding another reason why it is better not to have a car on campus, for needy friends are just that-needy. The only perk students can address is having access for easy roadtrips or going home, two of the most common reasons for students to use public transportation, for everything a student needs is within walking distance.
