    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.
