San Diego State University has been named the most visited university in San Diego County by the rideshare company, Lyft. The designation is part of the Lyftie Awards program, a distinction given annually to the region’s top destinations.

The awards are given county-wide and are determined by calculating the number of drop-offs at a wide-range of popular destinations.

“This is the first year that the Lyftie Awards have recognized the ‘Most Visited University’ and we’re proud to recognize SDSU,” said Hao Meng, Lyft San Diego market manager.

SDSU’s sprawling scenic campus, which features historic Hepner Hall and a handful of arts-and-culture venues and sports arenas, attracts thousands of locals and out-of-town visitors each year.

The university is one of six spots selected in San Diego County. Balboa Park and Petco Park also made the award list.

“We understand there are many alternate modes of travel to and from campus and want to promote those alternatives, while maintaining our goal of a safe environment for the campus community,” said Debbie Richeson, director of SDSU Parking and Transportation Services. "We try to encourage our community to use alternate modes of transportation for daily campus usage and events such as concerts and basketball games at Viejas Arena and the Cal Coast Credit Union Open Air Theater.”

In October of this year, SDSU announced a partnership with Lyft for the 2017-18 football and basketball seasons. The partnership marks the first time rideshare vehicles have been permitted for pick-up and drop-off at SDCCU Stadium.

The university has 12 designated rideshare pick-up and drop-off locations on campus. The locations can be found on the campus interactive map and also are listed below:
