News In Brief

With gas prices sky-rocketing and on-campus parking becoming increasingly congested, UCI has partnered with the OCTA bus lines to offer UCI students and employees the U-Pass.
After visiting the parking office or UC Items store to activate the magnetic strip on their ID cards, students and employees can ride any OCTA bus route any day of the week for free.
The department of parking and transportation hopes that the U-Pass system will be as successful at UCI as similar programs have been at the UCLA and CSUF campuses, which have had similar parking issues.
