People often think all we do is provide parking on campus, but that couldn't be further from the truth. Sure, parking is part of it. Most of it, however, is getting you access to campus. That's what we're all about: being green, sustainable and safe.
To highlight some of our goals, accomplishments and best practices, we've made this nifty video. Check it out below and on our YouTube channel.
Sunday night's basketball game against Long Beach State at Pauley Pavilion was dedicated to UCLA Transportation and its efforts in promoting sustainable transportation.
Along with a Bruin victory, Energy Upgrade California—a state initiative aimed at saving energy and conserving natural resources—presented Renee Fortier, executive director of UCLA Event & Transportation; Penny Menton, director of communications, organizational development & commuter services; and Dave Karwaski, senior associate director of planning, policy & traffic systems, with the Energy Champion award.
The award recognizes UCLA Transportation's "leadership in making UCLA and California a model of clean energy and sustainability" by providing sustainable transportation options designed to encourage the entire UCLA community to carpool, bike, walk, vanpool and use public transit. UCLA Transportation has dramatically reduced traffic generated by single occupancy vehicles and the corresponding greenhouse gas emissions.

Exciting news! The Culver CityBus Rapid 6 has returned to Gateway Plaza (formerly known as Ackerman turnaround). They've also implemented additional service—with a new mid-day service between 10:12 a.m. and 2:42 p.m. that picks up every 30 minutes and additional evening service.
To top it all off, there's a new all-day Rapid 6 Short Line! The Short Line has 8 stops instead of the regular Rapid's 15, from Westwood Plaza/Strathmore Place to Sepulveda Boulevard/Palms Boulevard.
UCLA faculty, staff and students can ride any Culver CityBus for a 50-cent copay per ride, or by purchasing a BruinGO! Flash Pass for only $33 per quarter. This fall, as part of our new BruinTAP for Transit promotion, if you buy a Go Metro pass, you'll get a Flash Pass for free!
