Take the bus. It’s FREE!
If you want to reduce your commuting costs, alleviate commuting stress and make productive use of your commuting time, ride an OCTA bus to campus!
The U-Pass program was designed to get you to campus and back without the hassle. It is available to all CSUF students, faculty, and staff. Just pick up a pass from the Parking & Transportation Office and swipe your pass through the fare box inside the bus, and your fare is automatically paid on all local routes. It’s easy. It’s convenient. And best of all, it’s FREE. CSUF parking ticket revenue funds this program.
You can also bring along your bike! Click here to view a video about how to board your bicycle on the bus.
