Calendar of Event & Traffic Alerts (ETA)


Published on August 11, 2019

The “transit first” philosophy, shared by UCSF, Chase Center, and the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), encourages the use of public transportation. However, on the busiest days, we still expect traffic congestion and provide a calendar to help UCSF commuters plan.

To see what’s happening at a glance, view the calendar at eta.ucsf.edu. Here you can choose a calendar view setting that works best for you - see a month at-a-glance view, or choose to see a listing of events happening for the upcoming week. Red indicates expected traffic delays near the start and end time of the event. Yellow indicates possible delays due to an event on the weekdays, and yellow also identifies all weekend events.
