Next to Detroit, Southern California is like the car capital of the world. Everyone drives around in a car in Long Beach. And since CSULB is a commuter campus, most students have cars. However, some students use local Long Beach Transit.

There are other modes of transportation including a jitney service and a shuttle. A lot of students ride bicycles, too.
