The USD shuttle stop is on the EAST side of the trolley/train tracks, closest to Old Town State part, NOT the side of the parking lot where there is a shuttle sign.  There is NO sign to indicate the stop, but look for a white van with a blue stripe where the taxis pick up passengers, marked by a white curb. DO NOT confuse the USD van with the UCSD van.
