Embrace Transportation Alternatives:

Cabrillo offers options to help students faculty and staff avoid the parking hassles and find more sustainable alternatives to the Single-Occupant-Vehicle (SOV) commute, including bikes, buses & carpooling.

  • Students pay a Transportation Fee which entitles them to unlimited rides on the Santa Cruz Metro Transit District buses! Show your Cabrillo card with current sticker to the bus driver, hop on and forget about traffic and looking for a parking space. Learn how to get your card.

  • Route 71: per a request from the Cabrillo Student Senate, Santa Cruz Metro modified the #71 bus route to include a stop at Union & Beach streets in downtown Watsonville, improving public transit access to Cabrillo's Watsonville campus.
