Chariot

UCSF partners with Chariot to serve employees commuting from the East Bay to Mission Bay and Mount Zion

This is a pilot program, funded in part by a grant from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission in an effort to ease congestion on the Bay Bridge.

Chariot began service from the East Bay to UCSF Mission Bay in June 2018 and expanded to include service to Mount Zion in September 2018. These locations were chosen due to the proximity to Kaiser, as part of the MTC grant. These Chariot routes will be made available to Kaiser employees later this year. We are planning a phased approach to additional routes as future demand dictates, and we will be studying demand at Parnassus Heights. Currently, UCSF employees who work at Parnassus Heights, Mission Center Building, or Laurel Heights can ride Chariot to Mission Bay or Mount Zion, and then transfer to a UCSF shuttle.
