Use Drop Off / Pickup Zone on Pico at 19th only. Do not use Pearl Street (it is too congested). Do not allow driver to stop in front of driveways, in bike lanes or in bus stops.
Avoid driving your car. Parking is very challenging and unpredictable. If you must drive, it is best to park at Bundy Campus (3171 S Bundy Dr., LA.). There is no cost for this parking decal and there are plenty of spaces. Shuttles run every 15 minutes to mian campus.
