Campus Transit Shuttle Service During Move In 
Students should choose UCSC Campus Transit buses for on-campus travel. Paying a fare and showing a bus pass is not required to ride campus shuttle buses.

On Thursday, 9/17 there will be a shuttle from the East Remote parking lot to Cowell College every 10 minutes from 9:00am to 5:20pm.

On Friday, 9/18 there will be a shuttle from East Remote to Crown College every 10 minutes from 9:00am to 5:20pm.

On Saturday 9/19 and Sunday 9/20 day shuttles (Loop route) will operate from 8:00am to 6:00pm. Night Loop buses, and East and West Night Core buses, will also be operating.

Night Owl service between campus and downtown Santa Cruz will operate on Saturday and Sunday night.

Metro Bus Service
For travel to off-campus destinations students can ride Santa Cruz Metro buses by showing their UCSC student ID card or a temporary Metro bus pass provided to new students by their college or housing unit (if the student hasn't obtained a student ID card).

Full school-term Metro and Campus Transit service will begin on Monday 9/21. At that time students should always try to select Campus Transit shuttle buses for on-campus travel, and limit use of Metro buses for times when they need to get to and from off-campus destinations (i.e. to go to downtown Santa Cruz or to shop off-campus).

When using Metro buses to get to off campus destinations students should primarily use routes 10, 15, 16 and 19; use of Route 20 Westside buses should be reserved for those going to west Santa Cruz destinations.
