Parking Shuttle Arrangements 🚍

Parking on campus at Occidental College is extremely limited. A twenty-four (24) seat mini-bus bus will shuttle passengers between Eagle Rock Plaza parking lot and Occidental College, according to the schedule indicated below. Look for the “Fast Deer” bus. Eagle Rock Plaza is located at 2700 Colorado Blvd, near the Glendale Freeway.

Map to Parking at Eagle Rock Plaza

Please park in the area west of the Macy’s store. The shuttle will depart from the upper level in this area. It is important not to park in spaces associated with the recycling operation. The support of Eagle Rock Plaza is greatly appreciated and essential to the success of the Science Olympiad.

Carpools are strongly encouraged! Please drop off passengers at Occidental College, near the intersection of Campus Road and Armadale Avenue (refer to the Logistics Map posted on the website), and then park at Eagle Rock Plaza and return to campus using the shuttle bus. Thank you for your cooperation and patience.

School Busses should enter campus at the intersection of Campus Road and Bird Road to drop off students – this is the same route as the shuttle bus route.

This shuttle bus service is provided in an attempt to facilitate parking arrangements and make your day at the Science Olympiad a little more convenient.

6:30 AM – 9:30 AM
Two shuttles will run continuously (as needed) between the remote parking area at Eagle Rock Plaza and the Occidental College campus. Drivers may drop off students/passengers, equipment, coolers and other belongings at the college, then drive to Eagle Rock Plaza where they may leave their cars and take the shuttle to campus.

9:30 AM – 4:30 PM
One shuttle may run as needed between Occidental campus and the remote parking area at Eagle Rock Plaza, providing service back to the remote parking area as needed. During this time, service from the remote lot to campus is not guaranteed.

4:30 PM – 7:30 PM
Three shuttles will run continuously (as needed) between the Occidental College campus and the remote parking area at Eagle Rock Plaza. Drivers may ride the shuttle to retrieve their cars and return to pick up students/passengers etc. As space on the mini-bus permits, students may also ride to the remote lot but please do not transport large items on the shuttles. Courtesy indicates that if there is a waiting line to ride the shuttle, that drivers only take the bus to the remote parking lot and then return to pick up passengers on campus.
