UC Davis offers a Mobility Assistance Shuttle to campus faculty, staff and students with documented mobility impairments or disabilities. This transportation service is available for academic or work-related purposes and offers convenient on-campus rides to more than 40 locations across campus. For rates, hours of service, shuttle stop locations and eligibility requirements please visit the Campus Recreation website. To schedule a pick-up or drop-off, please contact Campus Recreation at (530) 752-1730.
UC Davis disabled students, staff and faculty are required to display a valid campus permit along with their California DMV issued Disabled Person's placard/plate. To purchase a disabled permit (DSA), please bring your DMV issued Disabled Person placard/plate registration paperwork to Transportation Services (you may bypass the line and go directly to Window #1 for assistance). The DSA permit will provide access to Disabled spaces, "A" and "C" permit spaces, green time zones, and parking meters. "N", "M" or remote lot permits ("L") will provide access only to the area specified by the permit. Campus visitors may park with their disabled placard/plate without displaying an additional permit, and may park in spaces where DSA permits are honored.
Disabled spaces are conveniently located throughout the campus in parking lots and adjacent to some buildings. Disabled placards/plates are not valid in restricted spaces (such as 1 hour A permit spaces), loading zones, red zones, center core and reserved areas. Disabled individuals should keep their disabled person's identification with them at all times. Individuals are required to present their DMV issued Disabled Person's Identification along with a photo ID to Transportation Services personnel at the time of purchase.
If you are a Staff or Faculty member whose disability is severe in nature and requires additional parking accommodations within the restricted central campus, please contact the campus Disability Management Services Office at (530) 752-6008 for instructions on submitting a request for accommodation. Please allow 3-4 business days for processing. Students requiring additional assistance should contact the Student Disability Center.
A temporary medical parking permit is available to individuals with temporary disabilities and will provide parking where "A" permits are honored and at parking meters. The medical permit does not allow parking in disabled spaces or other restricted areas.
A temporary medical parking permit provides accommodation up to 2 calendar months only per injury. If you require parking accommodations for longer than this term you may wish to apply for a disabled placard through the California State Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). After obtaining a DMV issued placard, you may purchase a campus DSA (disabled) permit from Transportation Services (please see information above).
If you wish to purchase a temporary medical permit you will need to obtain a statement of health from your physician, on letter head, noting the nature of the disability and the duration that accommodation is required (beginning and ending dates). Otherwise, accommodations will be made effective from the date of the physician's statement of health.
The cost for processing a Medical Permit is $15, and it must be displayed with a valid UC Davis permit. If you do not already have a campus permit you may purchase one according to the permit types, terms and rates offered.
