Parking and Commuter Services is aware of the environmental concerns regarding single occupant vehicles and transportation, that is why we offer and encourage the use of alternate modes of transportation to and from our campus. Alternate and active modes of transportation such as bicycling, walking, carpooling, van pooling, and public transportation aid in reducing over congested freeways and air pollution. These methods are environmentally friendly and effective alternatives to reaching our campus from your home.
Biking to campus is a form of sustainable and active transportation available to our campus community. CSUSM offers commuting bicyclist several amenities including: free bicycle registration, bicycle racks with building accessibility, bike lockers, tire air pumps, and bike locks for loan.
CSUSM offers students, faculty, and staff carpool parking permits. Campus community members can choose to carpool and split the cost of commuting and parking with a classmate, neighbor, or friend and receive reserved proximity parking. Carpooling helps students and Faculty/Staff decrease carbon footprints and save money.
CSUSM offers the campus community a discounted transit pass that service both North County San Diego and Metropolitan San Diego. Discounted passes are only sold at the Parking and Commuter Services office to students, faculty, and staff with validated CSUSM ID's.
