The Coaster shuttle runs weekdays between the Sorrento Valley Coaster Station and campus, excluding university holidays.

  • During peak morning and late afternoon hours, the East and West routes serve campus. 
  • During off-peak midday hours, one combined route serves all stops, except as indicated below.

Upon the shuttle driver's request, riders must show a valid UC San Diego ID and either a monthly or quarterly Coaster pass or transit pass. For more information, see the Coaster schedule.

Sorrento Valley Coaster Station Diversions

When weather or traffic delays occur, we may divert:

  • From the regular drop-off/pickup location to the northeast side of the track
  • To Carmel Mountain Rd. as an alternate route

Although this may delay our station arrivals, we anticipate meeting all of our designated service times.
