Transportation Alternatives​

Students attending SMC have many options to get to campus without driving alone. In fact, 70% of students get to campus by bus, train, carpool, bike, scooter or walking because they know it saves money on gas and permits/tickets and is less stressful. ​

Use Corsair Commute SMC’s personalized trip planner to explore your all options (bike, walk, transit, carpool, and car) in one screen. It includes costs, time, route maps, calories burned and CO2.

*Some of the transportation options are provided by third parties and not regulated by SMC. Some may involve you signing legal agreements. You should carefully review the agreements and ensure that the option you select is appropriate for you.
