Los Angeles has cultivated a famous car culture, but there are excellent alternative means of transportation to the UCLA campus and surrounding neighborhoods. For a comprehensive and in-depth overview of transportation, including campus maps, explore more:
Bus Systems and Public Transit
An efficient and user-friendly bus system connects UCLA to the greater Los Angeles area. Staples of transit at the University are the Santa Monica Big Blue Bus and the BruinBus shuttle service. We are fortunate to have the primary bus station for these systems just a few hundred feet from the Law building.
Carpools and Vanpools
UCLA commuters save money and shed stress by sharing rides with fellow Bruins. Those participating in ride pools are eligible for discounted parking permits.
Parking is at a premium on the UCLA campus. A limited number of individual parking permits are available to students for main campus structures and affiliated lots. The parking application process is strict and competitive, so we strongly recommend that UCLA Law students read the parking websites thoroughly and apply early.
Bicycles, motorcycles and scooters are popular and efficient ways to get to and around campus. There are free parking areas specifically marked and equipped for these vehicles.
