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

  • 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.

Riders must show a valid UCSD ID and either a monthly or quarterly Coaster pass or transit pass to the shuttle driver upon request. For more information, see the Coaster schedule.

Sorento 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.
