Fullerton is home to Fullerton College and California State University, Fullerton. Students in Fullerton frequently travel by bicycle to classes, the Carnegie library, Titan Stadium or to punk shows. The Fullerton Train Station, the Pacific Surfliner and Metrolink commuter rail serve as their main mode of transportation when the trip is too long to make on a bicycle. As a busy city with St. Jude Medical Center and Raytheon as top employers, deliveries and commuter traffic can push bicyclists out of the roadways on those shorter trips. In July, 2013, a FedEx driver notably collided with a female bicyclist on Nutwood Ave in Fullerton killing her. The accident brought into question right-of-way with investigators initially stating that the bicyclist seemed to have had the right to pass.
