Triton Transit

Triton Transit operates fare-free on- and off-campus service, including four primary service lines:

  • Shuttles – Fixed-route service between campus shuttle stops
  • Mobility – Door-to-door service for individuals with limited mobility
  • DART On Demand – DART (Dial-A-Ride Transit) supplements fixed-route service in the evening, early morning and during academic breaks, excluding university holidays
  • Charters – Support for campus events, academic and student organization field trips and athletic travel

We operate electric carts, vans, small shuttle buses and full-sized transit buses fueled by renewable biogas (RNG).

During COVID-19, boarding is restricted to UC San Diego students, faculty and staff. Passengers must show the driver their “green thumb” result from the daily symptom screener when boarding. If a printout is used, instead of a handheld device, a UC San Diego identification card is also required. Learn more about how we’re keeping passengers safe during COVID-19.
