Transportation Services provides support for all campus transportation needs. We have several transportation programs geared towards enhancing sustainability and efficiency for all Santa Clara Universtiy students, faculty, and staff.
Carpool - Faculty, Staff, and Student Parking Incentives
Carpools are vehicles that arrive on campus with 2 or more persons. To participate in the Carpool Program you must:
- Register all participants in the carpool at the Campus Safety office. There is no fee associated with the Carpool Programs.
- Receive a Carpool sticker that must be visible on the vehicle of use.
- Upon arrival, the carpool participants must be verified by Campus Safety at the Main Gate.
- Once verified, the vehicle will be issued a daily parking pass to be coupled with the Carpool sticker.
- Each Carpool will receive 5 daily parking passes per month for participant's use during the month of issuance and must be validated on the day of use by Campus Safety at the Main Gate.

Charge Point - Electrical Vehicle Charging Stations
With options for both employees and visitors, ChargePoint stations are a great way to recharge your electric vehicle while you are on campus. Check out the Campus ChargePoint Map
to find the station nearest you!
Also, please take some time to familiarize yourself with the pricing policies. You must always display your parking permit while using the stations or be subject to a parking citation. The spaces equipped with charging stations are available while actively charging ONLY. »Info
Derozap - Bicycle Commuter Program & Dero Fixit Stations
Derozap is a campus bicycle commuter program to encourage individuals that work at the University to commute to campus in a more sustainable manner. For each day that a commuter rides their bike, they will receive a point. These points are then redeemable by the commuter for parking in the future. »Info
Does your bike need fixing? To support University staff, faculty, and student bicyclists, Transportation Services recently installed four Dero Bike Fixit stations around campus. »Info

Mass Transit Discount offers deals on mass transit tickets. Purchase a monthly mass transit ticket and receive 5 free daily parking passes per month. Parking passes are only for use during month of issuance and must be validated on day of use by Campus Safety at the University's Main Gate.

Accepting payment by cash, check, credit, or ACCESS card, Transportation Services is also happy to provide an added bonus to those in the program who choose to have their vehicles parked on campus over both the Summer and Fall Quarters: a free SCU parking permit for the rest of the year. »Info
Zagster - Bicycle Sharing Program

Zimride - Carpool and Ridesharing Community
Santa Clara University Zimride is our new private rideshare social network that can use Facebook to make a fun and easy way to share the seats in your car or catch a ride for commutes, road trips, and popular events. With Zimride, you can find SCU friends, classmates, and coworkers going the same way you are. If you have a car, split costs by offering rides. If you don’t have a car, find rides where you need to go.
