Parking on campus is coordinated through the Transportation and Parking Services office.  For more information on obtaining a permit, as well as a Disabled Persons Parking Placard, please visit the following sites:

  • California DMV - Information on applying for a Disabled Persons Parking Placard
  • Cat Access to Road Transportation (CatCart Program) - CatCart is a free service provided by UC Merced Transportation and Parking Services to assist UCM students, faculty and staff with temporary mobility issues in getting around campus.  Students needing to use this service do not need to be registered with Student Accessiblity Services to access this service.      Once eligibility is determined, the student will need to work with TAPS to create a schedule of pick up and drop offs to campus locations that focus on the student's academic needs.  Please note the CART service is not a call-a-ride service.  Further questions about this service should be directed to TAPS using the link above.
