Facts, Plans & Reports

UCLA Trip Planner

UCLA Transportation produces an annual State of the Commute report highlighting the university's efforts to maintain sustainable transportation programs, analyze recent commute trends, and highlight notable achievements such as reducing the UCLA employee drive-alone rate to under 50%.

The UCLA Active Transportation Plan provides a framework to improve campus livability and safety by detailing policy and infrastructure initiatives that increase walking, biking, and other active forms of transportation.

UCLA Transportation recognizes and strives to meet the challenges presented by an ever-evolving world where zero-emissions vehicles usage and demand for charging points are steadily rising. As such, the EV Readiness Plan will guide equitable transportation investments that encourage a growing EV commuter base and ultimately foster a more sustainable future. This plan seeks to expand the university’s initiatives, charging infrastructure, and policies while delivering a set of operationally strategic goals and milestones.

UCLA Transportation aims to reduce fleet greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by targeting vehicle type, vehicle fuel, and vehicle miles traveled. The campus operates a centralized fleet management system allowing it to aggressively pursue the turnover of Fleet inventory towards zero-emissions vehicles (ZEVs), partial zero emissions vehicles (PZEVs), advanced technology partial zero emissions vehicles (ATPZEVs), and other alternative fueled vehicles (AFVs) that use biodiesel, compressed natural gas (CNG), and/or ethanol.

In accordance with the 1990 UCLA Long Range Development Plan (LRDP), the Cordon Count Report is an annually published document detailing the volume of average daily traffic (ADT) generated by vehicular trips to and from the UCLA campus. Since 2002, as part of the updated UCLA LRDP, the university has observed a self-imposed cap of 139,500 daily trips, successfully and consistently decreasing its ADT year over year.

From Attainable to Sustainable

UCLA Transportation’s Sustainable Transportation Plan operationalizes and extends the campus’ Climate Action Plan’s focus on reducing mobile source greenhouse gas emissions and improving campus livability. The Plan’s goal of providing a balance of fiscal, environmental, and social/customer sustainability is coordinated with an understanding of the campus community and campus visitors’ mobility needs. The Sustainable Transportation Plan sets the strategic course for UCLA Transportation from 2019 through 2026, covering the period from the present to when the Purple Line subway extension reaches Westwood.
