Grocery Shuttle will now be running every Tuesday 2pm-6pm during Summer.

Grocery Shuttle

Housing, Dining, and Hospitality (HDH) along with Transportation Services and Basic Needs at UC San Diego have partnered to offer a free weekly shuttle service to Convoy and Balboa Ave from Mandeville Lane Loop for both graduate and undergraduate students. You can find various dining options there as well as grocery stores (99 Ranch Market, Balboa International Market, Food 4 Less, Zion Market, Tropical Star Market and Restaurant, and H-Mart). You can find the route here along with the departure times from each location. We have also received several coupons and special offers for UCSD students (see below).

We encourage anyone who is planning on shopping to bring your own grocery bags. 

To find grocery stores near the shuttle stops, please use our Affordable Grocery Store map. Pink stars have been added by the shuttle stops.
