Along the South Line alone, the 47th Avenue Station has 424 spaces and the Florin Station has 1076 spaces – a total of 1500 parking spaces. Learn more at, 321-BUSS (2877), or TDD: 483-HEAR (4327).

Taking RT to SCC means you can arrive on campus, take a class, take light rail downtown for lunch, to run errands, or take a class at our Downtown Center, and come back for more classes on the main campus without having to worry about finding another parking space or paying for parking near the Downtown Center.

Take advantage of this great opportunity to save gas money, parking fees, wear and tear on your car, and help reduce air pollution!

If you are a registered student, remember to pick up your Universal Transit Pass (UTP) sticker and affix it to your Student Access Card to ride RT Buses and Lightrail. For more information visit the Student Access Card web site.
