UCSC Vanpool Routes and Schedules

Vanpools serve home locations from Mountain View to Monterey. The following table shows the starting location, the schedule and monthly fares. Employees pay their monthly fares through payroll deduction (in arrears). Students must pay for the vanpool prior to each quarter. Email the vanpool coordinator or call 831/459-4289 for payment procedure and route and meeting time details.

The student waiting list for Fall 2014 opens on July 1, 2014. Students must be 18 years old to be eligible for vanpool participation.

The schedule listed for each vanpool reflects the time the van arrives and leaves the campus, not the time it meets at the starting location.

Vanpools with openings are indicated by * symbol.
