Parking & Transportation

Take advantage of the affordable parking pass (pricing below).

Please be aware that many of the streets surrounding the Sacramento City College campus require City of Sacramento “L” parking permits. City of Sacramento Parking Enforcement does routinely check this area and will issue tickets to people parked in “L” zones without an appropriate permit as well as cars parked longer than the designated time in the park. A SCC campus parking permit DOES NOT allow for on-street parking and is used only for the designated SCC campus parking lots.

There are lots of great reasons to park in college lots, so find a student parking lot.
