Cats on the Go: Temporary Disability Accommodation

Cats on the Go is an Office of Disability Services program that offers students with temporary disabilities that impair mobility, transportation between locations, or classes on campus. The program is free and only offered at the San Marcos campus. Cats on the Go only provides transportation to locations that the Bobcat Tram (free shuttle) does not serve.
