Whether you're offering a ride or need a ride, ridesharing is a great way to reduce traffic congestion during peak times, as well as reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental pollutants that result from commuters driving each day*. To get started, visit iCommute or zimride.
Commuting to and around UC San Diego Extension campuses by bike or by foot is a healthy, inexpensive and reliable form of transportation. While enjoying fresh air and the most scenic views of the city and campuses, you're also reducing traffic congestion and making a valuable contribution to the environment.

Public transportation is convenient, inexpensive and operates day and night to get you to your campus or city destination.
Two shuttle systems operate on the UCSD campus to assist UCSD Extension students. The campus loop system connects 20 locations on campus and operates from 7:00am - 12:15am The North parking shuttle connects the northern parking lots with the middle of campus at the Mandeville Center/Faculty Club area; it also operates from 7:00am -12:15am. Both shuttle systems are free. Phone the Transportation Alternatives Office at (858) 534-RIDE for information or see the posted schedules at the shuttle stop locations.
If you're driving during peak commute hours, allow plenty of time for traffic congestion and, if you're new to any of the UC San Diego campuses, for locating your campus destination and the closest parking facility. Additional parking information.
