Updates to Your goClub Membership

Last updated July 2021

While we remain committed to sustainable transportation, funding for the goClub (subsidies, transit vouchers) is made possible from parking revenue, which has seen an 80% decline since March 2020.​​​​​

  • Complimentary parking passes will no longer be offered to goClub members as of July 1, 2021.
  • ParkMobile is available on campus and goClub members now have access to affiliate rates through the pay-to-park app. 
  • Carpool parking permits are no longer available. However, sharing the ride and sharing the parking cost is easy with ParkMobile. Add the vehicle license plate number into your ParkMobile account and drivers and passengers can alternate days paying to park. (No need to own the vehicle to have it listed on your account.)  
    • Please note: When sharing the ride, we encourage exercising caution to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and (when possible) limit your carpooling to those within your household.
  • Transit subsidies via WageWorks are suspended. We are working on providing a pre-tax, payroll deduction option for commuters, which we hope will be available in Fall 2021.


Please contact our office at 530-752-8277 with any questions.

Why choose goTrain?

Davis is fortunate to have its own train station Downtown, connecting the Aggie Community from the Bay Area, Sacramento, and all the way up to Auburn via Amtrak's "Capitol Corridor."  All Capitol Corridor trains are equipped with luxury seating, food cars, and Wi-Fi, allowing you to get a head start on morning emails or just relax while you commute. Train travel as a work commute option is becoming more popular for students, staff and faculty that live farther from campus and are looking to save time without giving up comfort for their commute.

If you are able to ride the train as your primary commute, we encourage you to give it a try and see if it's within your budget. Join the goClub as a goTrain member and be a part of the club with others looking for a quick, low-stress commute.
