Transportation and Parking

Department of Public Safety

The Department of Public Safety subscribes to working collaboratively with the USF community to proactively solve safety and parking and transportation problems, and to increase personal and institutional preparedness for natural and man-made disasters. This will help create a safe and secure environment where faculty, staff, students, and campus visitors can pursue positive work and educational experiences. Please visit the Public Safety website to view information about campus parking permits. Public Safety also manages the Safety Escort Service that provides a safe means of transportation when no other form is available.

Public Transportation

Muni and BART are the two larget public transportation agencies in the Bay Area. Muni provides transit service within the city of San Francisco 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. BART serves 17 communities in the three counties operating 34 stations including service to San Francisco International Airport (SFO) and Oakland International Airport (OAK). In San Francisco, BART links with Muni light rail lines at the Market Street stations.

Ride Shares

Additionally, USF has a new partnership with Zipcar. For information about how it works, benefits, or to sign up as a member, please visit the Zipcar universities website. Another great San Francisco ride share service is City Car Share, a company that allows you to pick up a car within a couple of blocks and rent it for as long as you wish.
