URGENT - Possible Disruptions to METRO Service

To: UC Santa Cruz Community

From: Dan Henderson, Director, Transportation and Parking Services

Please be advised that, due to proposed labor actions by the Santa Cruz METRO bus operators union, there may be impacts to bus service beginning Monday, August 5, 2019.

We encourage all who regularly use METRO to have a contingency plan in place. Other options include biking or walking (when able), Lyft, Uber, Zipcars, JUMP bikes, providing or sharing a ride with a friend, or connecting with someone through Zimride.  We also encourage everyone to arrive to campus early, thereby allowing plenty of time to get to your destination. TAPS will work to develop additional transit and / or parking alternatives for our campus community, and will communicate those as they become available.

TAPS understands the critical nature of transportation to campus. We will continue to work with METRO to better understand, communicate with you, and ideally mitigate any impacts there might be to our campus community.
