Shuttles

View shuttle schedules effective Monday, August 31, 2020.
Based on rider demand, shuttle service will increase to continue to meet the transportation needs of on-site workers, while maintaining a 12-passenger limit per shuttle to ensure space for physical distancing.

  • Grey Route (Parnassus Heights | Mission Bay) Increased shuttle frequency throughout the day
  • Bronze Route (Parnassus Heights | Aldea) Extended service hours include an earlier start in the morning and later service in the evening
  • Lime Route (Parnassus Heights | Buchanan Dental Center | BART) Midday service will be added to accommodate passengers throughout the day
  • MCB Riders: Connect to BART via Yellow or Lime shuttles. The Purple shuttle between BART and MCB will be discontinued due to low ridership. Riders at MCB should catch the Yellow or Lime shuttle to travel to and from the 16th Street BART station.

See Routes & Timetables section below for schedules and stop information by route.

Together, we can prevent the spread of COVID-19
For your safety, all passengers must wear a mask when boarding and riding the shuttle. Shuttles are limited to 12 passengers seated only in designated seats to allow space for physical distancing.

BART Connections


Faster, Easier BART connections

To better serve commuters who travel on BART, we’ve made the connection between BART and UCSF smoother and faster. Expanding service to regional transit hubs aligns with our goals to improve transportation options for UCSF staff, faculty, students, patients, and visitors. 

Parnassus Heights | BART
UCSF’s Lime shuttle route includes a stop at the 16th Street BART station to provide a direct connection between Parnassus Heights and BART (no transfer required) throughout the day.

Where to catch the Lime at BART
In the mornings, the Lime shuttle stops at BART at: 2970 16th Street (between Mission St. and Capp St.)
In the evenings, the Lime shuttle stops at BART at: 3001 16th Street (between Mission St. and Hoff St.)
For more information, view map of the Lime shuttle stop locations at BART.

Mission Bay | BART
Mission Center Building (MCB) | BART

Beginning June 1, connections between BART and Mission Bay, and BART and MCB, will be faster with increased capacity. Red shuttles will provide direct non-stop service from Mission Bay to the 16th St. BART station only, effectively making all Red shuttles Red Express shuttles. This change reflects rider feedback and ridership data collected during regular service operations, prior to COVID-19 impacts.

For MCB riders, connect to BART via the Yellow or Lime shuttles.

On-Demand Shuttle Service

The Mission Bay Jitney offers on-demand shuttle service weekdays from 8:00 am—5:00 pm to transport riders within a ½ mile of the Mission Bay campus.

To request a ride, click here or call 415.915.4283.

The after-hours and weekend on-demand service, known as the Mission Bay Local and Parnassus East/West routes, has been temporarily discontinued as of July 1, due to extremely low ridership and budget constraints. We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to returning the service when ridership volume warrants reinstatement. If this causes a hardship for your commute, please contact us at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

UCSF shuttles welcome UCSF faculty, staff, students, patients and patient family members on board. Please show your UCSF ID when boarding. Minors are welcome, in the company of a parent or chaperone.
