Authority: California Vehicle Code 21113 For interpretation of this policy, please contact the responsible department: Parking and Transportation Services (909) 537-5912.

This policy identifies various zones on campus where driving restrictions, including golf carts, are in place. Consistent with the CSUSB Master Plan, the center, or 'academic core,' of campus is a pedestrian-scale space and not intended for regular vehicular or golf cart traffic. In order to preserve an efficient and tranquil campus environment, and to increase pedestrian safety, the following policy shall be enforced:


  • The restricted drive zone is identified in white/grey on the campus 3-D Map and is the most frequently used route for pedestrians. The only vehicles authorized in the restricted drive zones are emergency vehicles, Services for Students with Disabilities vehicles transporting persons with disabilities, and vehicles affiliated with approved campus events as authorized by Parking & Transportation Services.
  • The service access zone includes all pathways on the campus 3-D Map marked in Fuchsia. These pathways are paved service roads and sidewalks.
    • Access within this zone is determined by permit type, either “all access,” “vendor,” or “temporary loading.” These permits are issued by Parking & Transportation Services.
  • The drive zone includes campus roadways and parking lots, indicated in blue on the Campus 3-D Map. All posted signage must be followed.

Driving on sidewalks is only permitted for:

  • Emergency vehicles
  • Services for Students with Disability vehicles transporting students with disabilities
  • Service vehicles displaying “all access” permits issued by Parking & Transportation Services

These authorized vehicles must travel on the sidewalk that is the most direct point of access to the building they are serving. Sidewalks may not be used as a route of vehicular travel between buildings.

Driving on turf or landscaping is prohibited at all times, unless authorized by Parking and Transportation Services and shall be restricted to the area necessary as part of an active work or event site.

Entry and/or use of controlled-access pathways via electronic gate-arms systems are restricted to authorized vehicles only, as approved by the Director of Parking & Transportation.

Vehicle speed shall not exceed the speed limit as posted on the drive zone pathways or the average speed of a pedestrian on the restricted drive zone and pedestrian traffic shall maintain the right-of-way. Please report violations of the speed policy and/or unsafe vehicle operations to Campus Police at: 909-537-7777.
