Changes in shuttle service, on-campus parking fees

The University has increased free shuttle bus service to and from the Daly City BART station this semester, providing additional buses during peak hours and reducing passenger lines and waiting times.

During peak hours, there is now a fleet of five buses, compared to two or three in previous years. Hours of operation remain 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday.

Due to budget issues, low ridership and an effort to improve service on the Daly City route, the University has eliminated routes to and from the Golden Gate Bridge and Bay Bridge.

Bay Bridge shuttle riders can take BART to the Daly City station and obtain a transfer for a free MUNI ride to campus. The SFSU Daly City BART shuttle is also available.

Golden Gate shuttle riders can take the MUNI 28 bus, which runs frequently throughout the day. The bus takes riders from the bridge toll plaza to campus -- the identical route of the former SFSU shuttle. For specific schedule information, call (415) 817-1717 or visit:

After extensive analysis, the University finds it necessary to change the parking-fee structure for the first time since 1987 to support the parking facilities and its related functions. The modified parking fees of $1 per hour up to four hours, with a daily maximum of $5, apply to public parking. Faculty and staff permit parking rates remain the same.
