Public Transportation, Visitors

Public Transportation 

UC Davis has many public transportation options that can bring you directly to and from campus. Whether you're visiting for the day or planning a trip to campus for an event, utilizing public transportation is a great way to avoid crowded roadways and parking lots.

Due to Cal/OSHA’s Emergency COVID-19 rules (set to expire in October 2021), Transportation Services is not actively promoting ride-sharing at this time. 

Plus, Transportation Services is committed to doing our part in meeting or exceeding the UC Office of the President directive on decreasing greenhouse gas emissions by reducing drive-alone commutes by 10% from 2015 levels by 2025. Riding public transportation helps the Aggie community move toward a more sustainable future.
