The UCLA Vanpool Program offers a viable alternative to driving at a subsidized rate. Vanpools are groups of people who travel to UCLA in a UCLA van.

Vans typically operate Monday-Friday, traveling between common pickup locations and the UCLA campus. There are 140 routes serving roughly 80 communities in five Southern California counties.

Parking permits are in extremely limited supply and not guaranteed. Access for a single occupancy vehicle permit is offered on a prioritization process.

Registered students must fill out the online parking application in order to obtain a commuter, residence hall, or carpool permit. 

Please Note: For students who have been awarded Spring Quarter parking, the deadline to purchase a permit has been extended to April 10.
