Transportation is responsible for providing access to and mobility within the campus in an environmentally friendly manner.
UCLA offers a comprehensive array of sustainable transportation options, including: subsidized carpooling, public transit, vanpooling, and carsharing, as well as bicycling and walking programs. UCLA works with public transportation service providers and regulatory agencies to develop strategies and programs which are in alignment with UC Regents’ goals for environmental sustainability.
Fleet, shuttle and rental services
Over 1,000 University-owned vehicles are managed and maintained by Transportation. Core services include vehicle leasing, maintenance and repair, fueling (unleaded and CNG), and vehicle and vessel procurement. Currently over 1/3 of the campus fleet is alternative-fueled. Through BruinCar, campus departments and student organizations can rent various types of vehicles for short-term needs. Transit Operations provides the BruinBus campus shuttle program, as well as charter, contract, and special event bus service.
Enforcement and traffic support
Transportation protects parking spaces for legitimate permit holders, and provides traffic control and first response support for campus emergencies. The department also manages the campus traffic signal control system and automated traffic counting system, oversees campus transportation infrastructure improvements, and serves as a liaison with county and state agencies regarding roadway and traffic conditions in the area surrounding the campus.
Transportation manages more than 24,000 parking spaces in 29 different structures and 24 lots, serving a daily population of 65,000 staff, faculty, students, patients, and visitors. Services provided to the UCLA community include: permit programs, patient and visitor parking, parking facility maintenance and construction, special event parking and transportation, and attendant services. Information & Parking booth staff provide the UCLA community and campus visitors with a wide range of information beyond simply where and how to park, serving as campus ambassadors.
