Welcome Back Anteaters
In preparation for the academic year, UCI Transportation has made substantial improvements to parking facilities including the opening of lot 70 at Bison Ave & Health Sciences Rd, adding approximately 1,000 parking stalls and 20 electric vehicle charging stations. This gives UCI an unprecedented 178 total EV charging stations. During the summer, our maintenance staff resurfaced over 700,000 square feet of asphalt, widened parking stalls, & installed signage to better differentiate parking in mixed-use areas. Additional information regarding transit, biking, & more are detailed in our Fall Travel Guide below.
