Tips for using the Train:
Many of the riders are UCD students going to and from the campus, but the system is also used extensively for trips to other places in Davis: including downtown, junior and senior high schools, library, hospital, neighborhood shopping centers, medical offices, senior center, theaters, and the Farmers' Market. Buses serve all these places every weekday from 07:00 AM to 11:00 PM and on Saturday from 09:00 AM to 05:00 PM. Buses run more frequently during the UCD academic year when ridership is higher, and less frequently during the summer and breaks. You can pick up a printed schedule at most public buildings or use the Unitrans Website to get more details.
Anyone can ride Unitrans for a 1-dollar cash fare, and many types of prepaid discounted tickets and passes are available. One special fare category are UCD Undergraduate students, who can show a valid ID instead of a cash fare, because they pay a portion of their quarterly ASUCD fee to Unitrans. The http://taps.ucdavis.edu/TAPS Transitpool program provides graduate students and other university affiliates with passes discounted up to 40%.
