UC San Diego is currently soliciting input from the campus community regarding transportation and parking policy.
Students, staff, and faculty can make their voices heard by accessing IdeaWave with their UC San Diego email address through April 18, 2016. Supporters for smart transportation choices can let the administration know they support more access to campus for transit, walking, and bicycling.
Circulate San Diego submitted a detailed comment letter, outlining a variety of ways UC San Diego can improve access to the campus, without relying only on more expensive car storage and added traffic.

We are pleased to submit this letter with suggestions regarding how MTS can enhance fare payment systems for our region’s transit systems.
