Transportation to the Conference

UCSC is accessible but inconvenient without a car, so car rental or
ride-sharing is recommended. The UCSC campus is located approximately
three miles, or 15 minutes by car, from downtown Santa Cruz and the
conference hotel. The campus can be reached in the following ways:

By bus: Route #1 University buses offer service approximately every 7
minutes on weekdays and every 15 minutes on weekends between the UCSC
campus and the Santa Cruz Metro Center (920 Pacific Avenue, next to
the Greyhound Bus Station). One of these buses, Route #1
University/Lower Bay, provides service once an hour between the Metro
Center, the West Coast Santa Cruz Hotel, and the UCSC campus. Use the
bus stop at the corner of Bay Street and West Cliff Drive to and from
the conference hotel. The bus departs Bay and West Cliff a couple
minutes after the half-hour. At UCSC, use the bus stop for Cowell &
Stevenson Colleges (across from the Bay Tree Bookstore parking
lot/construction site). Route #1/Lower Bay departs from this stop at
approximately :45 each hour. Bus schedules are available at the Metro
Center. Fare: $1.00 per ride, $3.00 for a day pass.

By car: From San Jose on Highway 17 or from the south, take Highway 1
north through town (Highway 1 becomes Mission Street in town); turn
right (inland) on Bay Street, one light after Laurel Street. Coming
from the north on Highway 1, turn left on Bay. Bay runs directly to
the east entrance of the UCSC campus. (In the opposite direction, Bay
Street runs directly to the ocean and the conference hotel.) Parking
permits are required at UCSC from 7 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday
and can be obtained for $4.00 per day from the Transportation Office
(take the first right past the Information Booth and follow the
signs). Parking permits are not required on campus on Saturdays and
Sundays. Follow the signs to the conference site at Cowell and
Stevenson Colleges.

Student "crash" space: 
A campus apartment has been reserved to be shared (co-ed) by
