Commuter Corner

Commuting to Campus Just Got Easier!


At CSUEB, most of our students commute to campus from home or work. With our beautiful hilltop location overlooking the Bay Area, you have multiple ways to get to campus: drive/carpool, free Campus Shuttle from BART, AC Transit Bus Line 60. CSUEB is a great choice for commuters who want to spend less time in their cars, and more time finishing their degrees.

But did you know we also offer many more commuter-friendly conveniences right here on campus? Welcome to Commuter Corner - resources and services to help you make the most of your time here on campus.

Check out the campus map to familiarize yourself with all the buildings.


Pioneer Commute

The new platform Pioneer Commute recognizes and rewards your actions to reduce the traffic, parking and environmental impacts of driving alone. Whether you’re coming to campus daily, learning and working from home, choosing lower-impact modes every day or mixing up your commute, you can reduce your impact and earn rewards!

Pioneer Commute is built on the RideAmigos platform and provides trip-planning, trip logging and ride-matching to earn prizes and incentives. Participants must actively log their trips by the last day of each month to qualify for incentives.
