Bicycle Friendly University

League of American Cyclists

In 2013, UC Davis earned a platinum rating as a Bicycle Friendly University--their highest rating! The League of American Bicyclists is a leader in setting and defining standards for bicyclists to create safer roads, stronger communities, and a bicycle-friendly America. See the report card for Davis.

Davis, both the city and the campus, has earned the name Bicycle Capital of the U.S. because of efforts to provide its thousands of cyclists with a bicycle-friendly environment. Wide streets, well-marked bike lanes, inviting pathways, gentle terrain, mild climate, and an attitude of mutual respect between cyclists and motorists have resulted in a community with the most bikes per capita of any in the nation. In Davis, bicycling is a way of life.

First University of California Campus


In 2021, Transportation Services transition from monthly permits to daily permits. Commute patterns have changed and Transportation Services is leading the charge and adapting operations in a way that can better serve campus and Aggies with flexible work and class schedules.

Daily parking rates offer daily choices to staff and student drivers who are adapting to virtual work/learning as part of regular, flexible schedules. For staff and those regularly driving to campus, daily parking rates are particularly important as a large portion of our workforce will continue working remotely for the foreseeable future. Similarly, daily rates will allow students to easily pay for the days they park on campus, rather than pay for an entire month. Plus, you can pay for parking from your phone with ParkMobile!
