Medical Escort Service and Accessible Parking | Pepperdine University

Medical Escort Service and Accessible Parking

Mobility Transportation Cart

Because of the campus terrain and the limited parking available on campus, Pepperdine is pleased to offer a mobility transportation cart for students with chronic medical conditions and disabilities, temporary or permanent. This service eliminates the need for parking passes, as anyone can call for or schedule rides. Call the Department of Public Safety (DPS) at 310.506.4442 to receive a medical escort on campus.

*Please note that a minimum 15 to 20 minute lead time is necessary on any of these requests.

Students may also create a pick-up schedule with DPS for transport to classes on a regular schedule by sending their schedule and phone number to DPS at DPSrides@Pepperdine.edu to establish communication with the mobility transportation cart team.

Students who require the use of a wheelchair or need assistance getting in and out of cars, should contact Transit Services at 310.506.4802 for transportation services.
