Bike SMC
Biking is not only the environmentally-friendly choice; it’s also a great way to reduce stress and stay healthy! The City of Santa Monica has recently expanded their bike lanes and improved mobility and safety for bikers in Santa Monica. SMC is currently constructing a large new bike parking island across from the Police Station on Pearl   Street. Remember to follow the rules of the road and always wear a helmet!

Staff parking decals are required on the Main Campus and on the Administration site.  Staff parking decals are also required to park in the reserved staff parking areas at the satellite campuses, including the Academy, Airport Arts, Bundy, and Performing Arts campuses. Staff may park for free at the satellite campuses in the student parking areas (parking is limited); however, a satellite parking decal is required.
Note: The Olympic lot is no longer available as a shuttle lot. Please go to the Airport Arts parking lot (West of the Bundy Campus) for the best chance of getting a parking spot right away. Then hop on the Big Blue Bus to the main campus. Faculty / Staff parking is also available in Lot #6, located on 14th and Pico Blvd. Parking passes can be purchased in auxiliary services.

Travel safely!
