Westside Connector Shuttle

In order to better serve our Westside campuses, TAPS will be adding a pilot shuttle service to and from the Westside Research Park (WRP)/Coastal Science Campus (CSC) and the residential campus.

If you have classes at Coastal Science Campus, see the tables below to determine which bus you should take to get to CSC before class and return to the residential campus after class. These trips have been tactically identified in collaboration between TAPS and stakeholders from CSC and WRP in an effort to align with class schedules.

The Westside Connector shuttles will only stop on UCSC properties; other stops along the route will not be served by these shuttles. The route will stop at:

  • Lot 122 (Barn Theater)
  • Lot 301 (Westside Research Park Parking Lot)
  • Coastal Biology Building (Inbound and Outbound)
  • Seymour Center

We always recommend giving yourself extra time to get to your destination, particularly during the morning and afternoon commutes.
