Although many students prefer to drive through the beautiful residential areas that encompass Pasadena, the recent increase in PCC’s enrollment has caused traffic in some of these areas.With over 20,000 students commuting to and from school, the Policy and Safety Services has recommended alternative paths that will enable students to avoid residential areas and prevent traffic.

According to Chief Peter Michael, PCC hopes to be friendly to its neighbors by catering to the need to inform students of different paths.

In order to come up with a plan, Michael spoke to the traffic engineers of San Marino and Pasadena to locate different ways of getting to campus.

“We are just trying to be good neighbors and I hope that our students will assist us in being good neighbors,” he said.

By avoiding residential areas and taking these preferred paths, students will benefit by having faster and safer commutes.

“We identified the main routes. By using the wider streets, students get to school faster and there is less congestion on the residential streets,” said Chief Michael.
