Corona Virus

NOTICE: Health concerns brought on by COVID-19 have had an impact on transportation. While we remain committed to sustainable transportation, how we will be able to operate the goClub for the foreseeable future remains unclear. Funding for our program is made possible from parking revenue, which has seen an 80% decline since the shelter-in-place order came down, leaving little to no money to fully operate.

Information contained on these pages may change in the months ahead as we continue to adapt to the short- and long-term effects of this pandemic. Thank you for your interest in sustainable transportation during these difficult times.

Why choose goBus?

Commuting to campus from home by bus is becoming more of a viable option for those in the Aggie Community. Yolobus, Solano Express, and Unitrans buses all serve Davis and surrounding communities, bringing students, staff, and faculty directly to campus.

If you are able to ride the bus as your primary commute, we encourage you to explore the routes near you and leave your car at home. Join the goClub as a goBus member and be a part of the club with others looking for an affordable, low-stress commute.

Which transit system is right for you?

We have a lot of transit systems providing service to/from the UC Davis campus. But which one is the one for you?

Davis Residents: Try Unitrans

It’s really hard to beat Unitrans. It’s frequent, cheap, and run by Aggies (ASUCD) for the entire Davis community. Purchase monthly passes via pre-tax payroll deduction (employees) or wide assortment of passes over-the-counter at the Transportation Services offices. Pay for fare when boarding by showing one of your pre-paid passes or paying cash on the spot.

  • It all depends on where in Davis you live. Check out the Unitrans system map to find the right route for you. You can also download the UC Davis App (iOS, Android) to easily track Unitrans buses from your mobile device and never miss a bus again!

Woodland Residents: Try Yolobus

Yolobus is Yolo County’s public transit system. It uses the multi-operator payment card (the Connect Card) and cash for fare. We strongly advise you register for a Connect Card and use that for your fare because it is just so convenient! Want to know when your bus is actually going to arrive? Use Yolobus’ live bus tracker.

  • Routes 242 and 243 are commuter-oriented routes that each make one trip each in the morning and in the afternoon. Both stop at the Silo Bus Terminal on campus while 243 makes an additional stop at the Memorial Union Bus Terminal. Route pair 42A (Davis to Woodland) and 42B (Woodland to Davis) run hourly and can thus be used as primary commute routes or just back up routes to 242 and 243 since.

Sacramento Residents: Try Causeway Connection

In partnership with the City of Sacramento, Sacramento Regional Transit (Sac RT) and Yolobus, UC Davis is expanding cross-causeway connections with an eye on sustainability. The Causeway Connection buses will be open to the public and will offer hourly service between the Davis Campus, downtown Sacramento and UC Davis Health. See more here.

If you don’t live near the Health campus, but can make it to Downtown Sacramento, consider trying Yolobus’ express commuter route 43R which stops at the Memorial Union Bus Terminal. Yolobus uses the multi-operator payment card (the Connect Card) and cash for fare. We strongly advise you to register for a Connect Card and use that for your fare because it is just so convenient! Want to know when your bus is actually going to arrive? Use Yolobus’ live bus tracker.

Dixon, Vacaville, Fairfield, Benecia, and Pleasant Hill Area Residents: Try FAST’s Solano Express!

The best commuter deal at UC Davis is riding the Solano Express provided by Fairfield and Suisun Transit (FAST). For just the low prices shown in the rate sheet below, you get access to the Solano Express’ multiple trips to and from the UC Davis campus. There aren’t many stops, but that allows for quick trips between the pick-up hubs. Fare is paid via pre-paid passes (available at TAPS), cash fare, or the Bay Area Clipper Card.

  • The SolanoExpress Blue Line is provided by FAST & Soltrans and is the best transit deal for anyone living in or near Dixon, Vacaville, Fairfield, Benecia, or near the Pleasant Hill BART Station. That's right, it even connects to BART! (The Blue Line also goes to Sacramento, but the route doesn't facilitate a morning commute from Sacramento just yet.)
