How to Have a Safer Commute: Tips & an Update from Transportation Services
Recently, UCSF staff from MCB and 1550 Bryant shared their concerns with UCSF Transportation Services regarding personal safety in the neighborhood, and when traveling to and from BART. Transportation offers a service update and the following information to help better safeguard your person and property:
Walking to/from BART
From BART to MCB, we recommend traveling on 16th Street to Folsom; and walk with a buddy if possible.
When parking on the street, do not leave any belongings in your car. Always try to take a buddy when walking to/from your vehicle.
MCB Parking Survey
If you must drive to work, let us know your level of interest in parking by taking the MCB Parking Permit Survey Capacity at MCB may be expanded based on demand.
Waiting at BART for the RED LIMITED
If you arrive before the RED LIMITED, wait within the BART station until the shuttle approaches. To view the shuttle’s route in real time, download and use the CLS Mobile App.
Important GREEN Shuttle Changes
Effective Monday 10/17/16, service at 4th and Townsend (Cal-Train) will be moved to 185 Berry St (China Basin).
The change in stop location is due to the long-term SFMTA Central Subway construction resulting in increased traffic and significant delays for the Green Shuttle.
Please utilize the 185 Berry St shuttle stop to access Cal-Train.
