Sustainable Transportation at SMC

                                                                

Transportation Mission Statement

The mission of the SMC Transportation Department is to transport students safely and efficiently within the campus community arriving at their destination on time as scheduled. SMC will use fuels such as CNG (compressed natural gas) in the safe transportation of students to have the least impact on the air quality and environment of this city and its surrounding neighborhoods.

SMC Shuttles
SMC provides a shuttle service that runs from the Bundy campus and the Performing Arts Center. This shuttle is free and runs frequently. Students are encouraged to park at one of SMC’s many satellite or shuttle lots to avoid the traffic congestion around main campus. Park and Ride will save you time, money and the planet by reducing your idle and wait time.​

Parking
If you plan to drive to campus, you should allow extra time for traffic and parking, which are particularly difficult during the first two weeks of school.  To park on any of the SMC campuses you must have a current parking decal. Parking decals for SMC's Bundy, Airport and Performing Arts Campuses are FREE. Parking decals  may be requested through Corsair Connect or picked up in person at the Bursar's office.
