Parking & Transportation

Parking

Residents may bring vehicles to TAMU-CC. 

Students living at Miramar 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.

Students living at Momentum Village 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. Doing so saves money and eliminates the search for parking on the Island. Momentum Village residents wishing to park on the Island Campus must either purchase a regular or garage University parking 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 Sanddollars 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.  This route stops at the Southside Transfer Station, where riders can catch buses to other parts of the area.

*Route 60 transports riders between the Island and Momentum campuses.  It only operates during the Fall and Spring semesters.  During the summer, riders can take route 63 between the Island and Momentum campuses.

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

How to Plan a Bus Trip 

Riders can plan a trip on public transportation using Google Maps.  Type in the beginning and ending points, then click the bus/train icon.  Google Maps will provide ride by ride instructions to get to any destination.

The TransLoc app, which is free and available for Android and Apple devices, allows riders to track buses anytime during operating hours.  This app can assist riders in determining where a bus is located and when it will arrive at a certain bus stop. 

Please note that buses do not operate on certain holidays and routes are subject to change due to construction, accidents, and other interruptions.  The CCRTA website contains current information and posts Rider Alerts (route change announcements).
