National Rideshare Week began today and lasts through Friday, Oct. 5. We encourage you to take advantage of free promotions and share the ride at least one day this week. Join the 57% of UC San Diego commuters who are helping our campus reach its carbon neutrality goals by not driving single-occupant vehicles. If you already share the ride, you can pledge your Rideshare commitment too.
You can carpool for free all week with the Waze Carpool pp. Transportation Services will offer limited reserved parking in the Hopkins and Osler Parking Structures for registered two-person carpools beginning Oct. 15.
On Free Ride Day, Tuesday, Oct. 2, you can ride the MTS Trolley, bus or NCTD Coaster Train for free. Enjoy discounted Lyft and Uber rides to/from transit stops on Free Ride Day with promo code RIDESHARESD18.
You can purchase discounted Lyft FLEX credit packages for use during Rideshare Week, and the rest of Fall Quarter 2018.

To help ensure passenger safety and improve traffic flow, UC San Diego partnered with ride-hailing companies to designate geo-fenced restricted passenger zones. Also, Campus Planning identified preferred pick-up/drop-off zones on the main campus, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and UC San Diego Health – Hillcrest and La Jolla. Preferred zones are located within a short walk from most buildings. We will continue to update the preferred zones to account for construction impacts, community feedback, and special access needs. You can view a map of these zones in the campus map (http://maps.ucsd.edu/) by selecting the Transportation & Mobility > Ridesharing. If you have feedback about the geo-fenced zones or preferred pick-up/drop-off locations, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We appreciate your continued support of our alternative transportation programs.
