Transportation Tips


Tips to Avoid Traffic at SMC

  1. Plan ahead. Schedule at least an hour before your class starts to make sure you get to class on time. And know where your class is located: SMC Campus Maps

  2. Use Drop Off / Pickup Zone on Pico and 17th Street, NOT Pearl Street. For more information, visit Transportation. Do not use Pearl Street (it is too congested). Do not allow the driver to stop in front of driveways, in bike lanes or in bus stops. 

  3. 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 14 minutes to the main campus.

  4. Get the latest SMC parking updates on Twitter.
