School groups are especially welcome for the day. To reserve free school bus parking, call 510/642-5215.
Getting here and parking
Parking is free in designated areas but very limited. Public transportation is the best way to get to Cal Day. AC Transit and BART go to or near campus, and free shuttles and cable cars provide closer access to campus venues, including the Lawrence Hall of Science, Space Sciences Lab, and UC Botanical Garden. See campus map.
Campus cafés and local restaurants offer a variety of menu choices, and there are many picnic sites on campus. See a list of local eateries.
