What are your Options?
It's your choice about the way you commute to campus. We'd like to offer you a few other options - carpooling, biking, walking, busing, vanpooling. Cal Poly Options is here to help!
You remember how fun this was when you were a kid? It's still the same
rush now that we're grown up and going to campus for work and class. Biking
is a joyride for your mind and body - the perfect infusion of fun, healthy
energy to get you where you need to be. Tune up your body and your budget every
- Walking is the easiest OPTION to get you to school with a smile on your face. Each step saves you gas money and a lot of stress. SLO shows its real beauty when you see it close-up. Say goodbye to the woes of traffic and searching for parking. Say hello to your new favorite time of day.
Those extra seats in your car are just begging to be used. Your car and wallet
will thank you because you will be cutting down on fuel, maintenance and repair
bills by leaving your car at home occasionally. So, sit back and chat with your
new carpool buddies. Have some coffee. Do a crossword. Relax and enjoy the ride.
Carpool parking spaces are available on campus for staff and faculty use. Each designated carpool parking space will be available to registered carpoolers only until 10 a.m. Monday through Friday. After 10 a.m. these spaces are available to anyone displaying a valid staff parking permit. Carpools must consist of two or more individuals. All members of a carpool must be in the vehicle upon arrival at the designated carpool parking space. All members of a carpool are required to register with the program. Permit stickers will be issued annually. Contact Susan Rains at ext. 6-6680. Two spaces each are located in the following parking lots: H-4, next to the Foundation building and Risk Management Building; H-4, corner of Via Carta and N. Perimeter, Parking Structure, top level on right as you enter; C-7, and College Ave.
For those of us commuting from outlying communities, this is a perfect OPTION
for making that precious time more precious. At a small cost, you can enjoy the
leisure of new free time while someone else gets you to campus on time. No more
daily wear-and-tear on your car. Now you can read the paper before your lunch
break or grab a few extra minutes of rest.
Affordable. Convenient. Less stressful. Sound good? Get on
the bus and rest your mind. OPTIONS can provide maps and schedules
and even help you plan your best
route. No worries - just time and space to enjoy your journey.
SLO Transit is fully subsidized making it FREE to all students, staff and faculty. Also we sell RTA (regional transit) passes at a reduced cost to the campus community.
