>UC Merced provides an assortment of transportation options and resources to get you where you need to go.

Whether you drive, bike, carpool or use public transportation, Transportation and Parking Services (TAPS) provides parking and transit services.

With a strong commitment to sustainability, UC Merced supports several alternative transportation programs to provide affordable and convenient options to personal-vehicle use, including CatTracks, the bus transit line that provides service to and from campus to nearby neighborhoods and communities and downtown Merced.

TAPS also serves commuters who drive personal vehicles to campus through its parking permit services.
