Proposed Shuttle Route Changes for Summer 2017

To improve campus mobility and adjust to increased traffic congestion related to regional transportation improvement projects, we propose restructuring service for the Coaster Shuttle and combining service for the Mesa Housing and Scripps Institution of Oceanography shuttles. These proposed changes are tentatively planned to take effect this summer, pending final campus approval.

Coaster Shuttle Town Hall Meeting

Thursday, July 6, 2017
11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Price Center West Green Table Room

Based on feedback we received from the 2016 IdeaWave Improve Our Commute campaign and Fall 2016 shuttle tracking data for evening Sorrento Valley Station arrival times, we propose streamlining Coaster Shuttle service to provide better connections with other shuttles and allow more travel time between campus and the Sorrento Valley Station, ensuring that passengers arrive prior to train departures.

Thanks to everyone who attended the May 3 Town Hall meeting and shared their ideas about proposed Coaster Shuttle route changes. Based on passenger feedback, we are presenting two additional route plan options currently being considered.

Option 1 – Coaster Loop

Based on feedback we received from the 2016 IdeaWave Improve Our Commute campaign and Fall 2016 shuttle tracking data for evening Sorrento Valley Station arrival times, we propose streamlining Coaster Shuttle service to provide better connections with other shuttles and allow more travel time between campus and the Sorrento Valley Station, ensuring that passengers arrive prior to train departures.

Combined Mesa/SIO Shuttle

To improve travel between the east and west campuses, we propose combining the Mesa Housing and Scripps Institution of Oceanography shuttle routes. Service for this combined route will run weekdays every 10 minutes from 6 a.m. to midnight in a clockwise loop between the Mesa Housing complex off Regents Road, central campus and Scripps Institution of Oceanography. In addition, we will continue to run a single dedicated shuttle for the current SIO route with service from main campus to the SIO P003 parking lot every 30 minutes from 6 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.
