Parking & Transportation

Hornet Night Shuttle


Parking is available on-campus, by permit only. Daily, weekly and semester permits may be purchased from University Transportation & Parking Services (UTAPS). UTAPS also operates a Hornet Express Shuttle that is a free transit system around campus and the surrounding areas, as well as a Hornet Night Shuttle, which is available to take students to various locations within campus.

Sac State is also bicycle friendly! With bicycle pathways throughout campus and a foot/bicycle bridge connecting to residential areas on the other side of the American River, as well as several on-campus bicycle parking compounds, commuting to campus by bicycle is a viable option.


The Sacramento Regional Transit District operates a network of public transportation options that cover the entire Sacramento metropolitan area, including 80 bus routes and 27 miles of light rail.


Traffic in the Sacramento area can get quite congested and a trip during peak commuting times can take much longer than anticipated. If you are planning to commute to campus by car, you can check local traffic reports to keep updated on the current traffic flows.
