Plan your visit
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.
Parking is free in designated areas but very limited. Check the parking map for more information.
See the campus map for bus and shuttle routes and stops.
Campus Perimeter Buses
Catch a ride around the campus, with routes past the residence halls and Clark Kerr Campus. Buses run 8 am–6 pm.
Zip into the hills above campus—to see the Lawrence Hall of Science, UC Botanical Garden, Space Sciences Laboratory, and Strawberry Canyon Recreation Area. The shuttle leaves every 15 minutes, 8:30 am–6 pm, from the east entrance of Evans Hall. Buses and shuttles are wheelchair-accessible; cable cars are not.
