Parking and Shuttles

Ride-Share Reimbursement

Essential on-site staff who must commute to their UCSF work location or between campuses to perform essential job functions and who no longer have access to UCSF shuttles or public transportation during their shifts given curtailments at BART and other transit agencies, may be reimbursed for commuting costs incurred using ride-share services, including Uber and Lyft.

The staff member's department must pre-authorize these ride-share expenses. The expense is considered an exceptional expense and must also be approved by the Control Point's Exceptional Approver. However, the department should first consider if there are any other alternative options available rather than ride shares, such as having staff drive their personal cars to commute to work and between sites. These ride-share costs are allowed for the period that UCSF is impacted by COVID-19.  Learn more about reimbursement for ride-share services »
