Transportation and Parking Options for New Employees
All campus affiliates pay to park at University of California campuses, including UC Santa Cruz. The cost of lot construction and maintenance, alternative transportation options, operations, and administration are all paid for by parking permit sales.
There are many ways to get to and from campus, including an external transit system (Metro buses), an on-campus transit system (Campus Transit), a vanpool program, carpools, and a campus-specific rideshare program (Zimride). There are also bike-related commute options, including a bike shuttle from two off-campus locations, a series of bike lanes and bike paths, bike racks throughout the campus, and showers available for those commuting by bike.
If you need to bring a car to campus, there are numerous parking permit options available. The permit types most commonly used by employees are A (faculty/staff close-in) permits, R (remote lot) permits, MC (motorcycle) permits, or N (night parking only) permits.
