Annual Transportation Survey

To: UC Santa Cruz Community

From:  Transportation and Parking Services

UCSC's Transportation and Parking Services (TAPS) is launching its annual survey to collect data on the travel patterns of our students, faculty, and staff. The survey is a key part of our effort to monitor and improve our programs, services, and systems. Most respondents should need no more than five minutes to complete it.


The questions in the survey relate to how you traveled to, from, and around your primary UCSC work or study site last week, Monday through Friday (April 22nd through 26th). Please complete this survey no later than Wednesday, May 8th.


All responses will be kept confidential. Even if you only work at or attend UCSC part-time, work at off-campus locations in Santa Cruz, or didn’t come to campus last week, your information is a valuable part of this data collection process.


Survey participants who fully complete the survey by May 8th (and submit their name and contact information at the end of the survey) will be eligible for our prize drawing of five $50 Bay Tree Bookstore gift certificates.


We sincerely appreciate your input and invite you to participate in the data gathering process by clicking on this link:

Finally, on May 15 – 22, remember to Vote Yes on Transit! – Yes on 73! at  This measure aims to help reduce parking demand on campus and also to meet sustainability and carbon neutral goals. Should it fail, service levels for both METRO and Campus Transit will continue to be reduced or eliminated. Thank you in advance for your support!
