Transportation Options

BIKE  Are you interested in riding your bike to campus? A Palm Desert bike route map can be found here.

VANPOOL We connect employees who live near each other and provide them with a recent-model van or SUV. Riders commute together, saving money and freeing up time to relax or catch up on work. It’s an easy way to start and end the day in a better mindset. For more information see our Vanpool Program: CSUSB Vanpool.

CARPOOL Looking for a better way to get to campus? You’ve come to the right place! When you share the ride, everyone benefits; your community, the environment, your car, and your wallet! We encourage alternate modes of transportation and reward eligible participants with our various incentive programs. Anyone using any form of alternative transportation is eligible for an incentive. See if we can partner you up with carpool buddy by checking out our Carpool Program.
