SF State is committed to being a walkable, bikeable, transit-oriented campus.
Our Goal: Reduce our Drive-Alone Rate
In 2009, SF State adopted a Transportation Demand Management (TDM) Plan to guide its efforts to minimize transportation impacts associated with the university's growth. It aims to minimize peak-period vehicle trips to the campus by promoting access to alternative modes of transportation. Click here to read the TDM Plan.
SF State supports SFMTA's goal of 50% non-auto (transit, bicycling, walking and taxi) trips by 2018 and the Board of Supervisors' resolution of 20% of trips by bicycle by 2020.
- We encourage sustainable commuting through Commuter Check Direct, free BART shuttles, a valet Bike Barn, on-campus shuttles, and a rideshare program. Students have access to the Gator Pass, which gives them free rides on MUNI and a discount on BART trips to and from the Daly City station. Learn more at the parking & transportation page.
- Power to the Pedal bike program: The Office of Sustainability and Associated Students co-sponsor free bicycle repair sessions at campus Farmers Markets and social bike events throughout the year. Follow SFSU Power to the Pedal on Instagram.
SF State conducts a transportation survey every three years to determine how commuters get to campus. Our drive-alone rate is steadily decreasing as more students, staff, and faculty commute via public transportation.
