OCTA/CSUF Partner On Free Bus Service

Cal State Fullerton faculty, staff and students can now take the bus – free – to get to campus, to the mall or to the beach.

Parking and Transportation Services has teamed up with the Orange County Transportation Authority to launch a University Pass program. Beginning Sept. 15, students, faculty and staff members with a valid TitanCard can ride OCTA buses simply by swiping their TitanCard through the bus farebox as they board. The program is free to riders and available all day, every day.

“We are pleased that this program has come to fruition,” said Paulette Blumberg, associate director of parking and transportation, who with Lupe Briseno, transportation program manager, worked with the OCTA. “Because of campus construction, we continue to look for fresh ways to meet the parking challenge. The U-Pass, along with stacked parking and parking at off-site locations, is among the ways we hope to better serve students, faculty and staff.”

The U-Pass is valid for travel on all OCTA routes and will be funded by parking ticket revenues.
