Parking and Transportation

Disability Van Services

The Disability Van Service (DVS) is a shared-ride service that provides on–campus wheelchair lift–equipped transportation for those unable to use the regular Campus Transit system. Disability Van Service is available to employees, students and visitors with temporary or permanent mobility impairments. No fare is required to use the Disability Van Service; however, current medical documentation and advance reservations are necessary. More information is available at the DVS website (or call 831/459-2829). 

Disability-Related Parking

UC Santa Cruz has two types of parking spaces for those who have disability-related parking needs:  standard and van-accessible disabled (or ADA) parking spaces, which are outlined in blue stripes and have a loading zone next to them, and Medical spaces. Medical spaces are standard-sized parking spaces, and are intended for those who need close-in parking due to a medical condition, but who don’t require the extra space provided by ADA parking spaces. More information is available at the Transportation and Parking Services (TAPS) website (or call the TAPS Sales Office at 831/459-4543).
