Parking & Transportation

Parking

Residents may bring vehicles to TAMU-CC. 

Miramar residents who bring a car must purchase a University Resident parking permit thru the University Police Department (UPD). The Resident Permit allows the student to park in designated Resident Only or in combined Resident/General Parking lots.  The permit does not give access to 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 Bus Route 60, 37, or 93 to the Island Campus to save time and money. Momentum Village residents wishing to park on the Island Campus must purchase a General Permit, Parking Garage Permit, or pay for hourly parking in the garage (this is a great option if you don't plan to drive to the Island very often).  

More parking information may be found on the UPD 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 93.

Flex 93 is brand new and operates with a both a fixed route and a flex route weekdays (Mon-Fri) from 12:15pm to 11:00pm and Saturdays from 9:35am to 9:00pm. The fixed route means it travels between the Island and Momentum Campuses.  It will deviate from the fixed route and to one of the flex stops (identified with a teal/light blue sign) when a rider calls 833-RTA-FLEX (833-782-3539) to request a pick-up or drop-off at a flex stop.  Flex stops include several locations in Flour Bluff, such as Bay Area Quick Care, Coastal Bend Business Innovation Center, Wal-Mart, and HEB Plus.  Click here for a map and information.    

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 37 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 area.  Click here for a map and information.

How to Plan a Bus Trip 

Riders can plan a trip on public transportation using the TransLoc Rider app.  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.
