Do your part for the environment! Southern California leads the nation in air pollution and traffic congestion. Currently eight in 10 commuters drive alone to work, and traffic congestion is growing by three percent each year. If changes aren’t made, average rush-hour speeds will drop by more than half in the next decade – from 35 mph to 15 mph!

People who rideshare can park in “Staff Only Carpool” spots. The rideshare program has allocated 15 parking stalls for staff/faculty members who carpool to El Camino College, located in Lots C, H, and A. The staff carpool stalls are marked with orange “Staff Carpool Only” signs and are ready for your group!

Contact Parking Services at ext. 3983 to learn more about the Rideshare Program.
