New Directions

UC Berkeley offers a comprehensive package of alternative commute programs to encourage the use of alternative transportation, with the goal of reducing traffic and parking demands, and helping to lessen the impact on the environment.

The New Directions program was implemented to offer a suite of attractive alternative commute benefits to UC Berkeley faculty, staff and students. The program offers transit subsidies, daily parking discounts for commuters who use alternative transportation, pre-tax purchases through payroll deduction -- administered through WageWorks, and a host of other benefits and incentives.
