Carpool and Rideshare

Bakersfield College encourages you to carpool and rideshare to get to campus. We have several designated drop off locations along the entrance on Haley Street, in front of the Outdoor Theater on the northeast side and near the entrance of Memorial Stadium. See our Drop-off Area Map.


Bus Transportation

Riding the bus frees you from the struggle with traffic or find parking, and you can focus on your studies as you commute to school. By using public transit, you will be limiting emissions, helping to improve the air quality in the Central Valley.

GET Bus

GET Bus has several buses that have regular routes to and from Bakersfield College. The bus stop, GET Transit Center, is located on the north side of campus on Panorama Drive. See the Get Bus Maps and Timetables for bus routes and times.

Students may ride free on all 100-numbered routes, not just on routes to and from the school, so they can save money commuting all around Kern County!

These efforts are funded by a grant from the Low Carbon Transit Operations Program, which provides operating and capital assistance for transit agencies to reduce greenhouse gas emission and improve mobility, with a priority of serving disadvantaged communities. The grant would not have been possible without the support of our public officials, like Kern County Supervisor David Couch.
