Get to Know your Transportation Options

Background image: Bike on campus

Every day thousands of students, faculty, staff and visitors come to UC Berkeley. Parking and Transportation is dedicated to helping you get to and around campus safely and efficiently.  

There is no free parking on campus, and parking is hard to find.  We highly recommend you use public transportation, bike, or carpool whenever you come to campus.
