Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) Shuttle The Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) Shuttle provides free service between the main UC San Diego campus and the Martin Johnson House at SIO. The shuttle runs counterclockwise from the Mandeville Auditorium on main campus to SIO every 15 minutes for most of the day (every 30 minutes between 6:30pm and 9pm). Look for the "S" sign on the shuttle dashboard. Exit from the Shuttle at the Fisheries Stop, just west of Parking Lot P014. Walk north to the stair case that heads towards the ocean. Staying outside the buildings, follow the stairs to ground level, past Isaac's Hall on the right, and veer left towards Martin Johnson House (T29) Building 8840. You may also exit the shuttle, walk north to Biological Grade, and head south down the road towards the ocean and onto a path along the coast to the Martin Johnson House.
Parking near Scripps Institute of Oceanography Very limited UCSD A and B parking permit spots are available at P011, P012, P013 and directly across the Fisheries Shuttle Stop in P014. A few participants have volunteered to drive people from Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) back to cars parked on main campus following dinner Monday evening. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in a ride back up the hill. SIO Shuttle services are also available until 9pm (see above).
Street parking may be found on public streets adjacent to the SIO campus (on La Jolla Shores Drive) or at La Jolla Shores Beach/Kellogg Park, a short walk to the Scripps campus. Please take note of parking restrictions (e.g., short term, one-hour parking); full day parking is difficult to find.
