I personally don't recommend bringing a car. The parking permits are really expensive (~$700 for the year) and I have heard that parking can be hard to find. Also, you get a bus pass which allows free rides on all the buses nearby.
what's the new policy? do you mean the campus shuttle or the La Jolla bus, county bus service or , horrors , both?

The public transportation around UCSD and La Jolla is convenient for students. It is easy to catch a city bus or UCSD shuttle to campus, the grocery store, or the beach. Students also get a free bus sticker, which will take them around La Jolla and other areas of San Diego for free. There are also free shuttles to the airport and the train station before holidays. The UCSD City Shuttle runs in a loop around La Jolla, picking students up from their apartments and taking them to school. The San Diego city buses and the UCSD shuttles often get crowded in the morning and afternoon when students are trying to get to school or home, but they are usually quick and on time.
Public transportation around the rest of San Diego is neither convenient nor quick. The buses do not come regularly, and you usually have to transfer at least once to get to your destination. The airport and the train station are about 10 miles away from UCSD, and taking public transportation to them can be time consuming. Overall, students agree having a car is not necessary, especially if you plan on staying in La Jolla, but traveling around the rest of San Diego is difficult without your own car or a roommate willing to drive you around.
