Transportation Services provides support for all campus transportation needs. Our transportation demand management (TDM) programs and policies are geared toward reducing single-occupancy vehicles traveling to and from campus. A recent campus study found constructing and maintaining a new parking garage could cost over $38,000 per parking space. We believe that investing in TDM programs will improve transportation efficiency for all Santa Clara University students, faculty, and staff. We are constantly exploring new incentives and programs to help the University avoid additional costs while reducing our transportation-related greenhouse gas emissions. For more information about Santa Clara's sustainability programs, please visit the Center for Sustainability's website.
