Parking & Transportation

Parking

Residents may bring vehicles to TAMU-CC. 

Miramar residents who bring a car must purchase a University Resident parking permit. The Resident Permit allows the student to park in designated Resident only parking lots or in combined Resident/General parking lots.  The permit does not give access to park in General Parking lots.  Miramar residents may not purchase a Parking Garage permit, but may pay by the hour to park in the garage.

Momentum Village residents will be issued a free permit that is only valid within the Momentum Village gates.  Momentum Village residents are strongly encouraged to take Route 60 or 63 to the Island Campus because it saves time, money and eliminates the search for parking on the Island. Momentum Village residents wishing to park on the Island Campus must either purchase a General Permit or Garage Permit or pay for hourly parking in the garage.  

More information may be found on the University’s parking website

Transportation

Students can utilize the regional bus system to get around town for free through a partnership with the Corpus Christi Regional Transportation Authority.  When getting on a bus, students simply show the bus driver their Sanddollar$ ID card. 

There are 4 routes that come to campus: 5, 37, 60, and 63.

Route 63 is very popular because it takes riders from the University to La Palmera Mall, Moore Plaza (HEB, Target, restaurants and many other stores), down Ennis Joslin and back to the campuses.  Route 63 operates year-round and is only closed on certain holidays and Sundays.  This route stops at the Southside Transfer Station, where riders can catch buses to other parts of the area.  Please see the full schedule for operating times.

Route 60 transports riders between the Island and Momentum campuses Mon-Thu from 7:30am to 7:30pm and Fri 7:30am to 6:00pm.  It only operates during the Fall and Spring semesters.  During the summer, riders can take route 63 between the Island and Momentum campuses.

Route 37 takes riders from the University to stops such as the Southside Transfer Station/La Palmera Mall, Walmart on Staples St., and the Port-Ayers Transfer Station.  

Route 5 allows riders to go grocery shopping at the HEB and CVS on Alameda at Roberts, explore shopping and local restaurants in Lamar Park and Town & Country Center, go to Doctor's Regional Hospital, and the Six Points Transfer Station.

All CCRTA buses have free Wi-Fi on-board.

How to Plan a Bus Trip 

Riders can plan a trip on public transportation using TransLoc Rider.  Type in the beginning and ending points.  Enter in your destination and TransLoc will provide ride by ride instructions to get to any destination.  TransLoc also provides GPS locations for each bus, so you know where a bus is at any time.

Please note that buses do not operate on certain holidays and routes are subject to change due to construction, accidents, and other traffic delays.  Routes do have altered hours on Saturdays, Sundays, and some holidays.  The CCRTA website contains current information and posts Rider Alerts (route change announcements). Alerts are also posted on the TransLoc app.
