The Bluebird Bus- 41 seats. These buses have reclining seats and reading lights. A wheelchair removes four seats, and these buses can accommodate up to two wheelchairs. The Thor Bus (a.k.a. "The Short Bus")- 29 seats. These are also the parking shuttles at the UCDMC. Can accommodate one wheelchair with no lost seats.
The UCDMC or UCD Medical Center Bus Line stops on campus behind Haring Hall across from the Silo (Lot 29), out by the Health Sciences Complex (Lot 56), and in front of Mondavi Center - then it's off to the UCDMC!
Riding this transportation option is limited to university affiliates (faculty, students, staff, interns, volunteers, patients, etc...)
An unlimited pass is issued to you if you volunteer at the medical center. Otherwise, you will need to buy a ticket (drivers do not take cash). Tickets are $1.50 each way and can be purchased with a campus I.D. at the following locations:
UCDMC Parking and Transportation Services located in the Facilities Services Building; 7:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
UCDMC Parking lot 4 kiosk, south of the Davis Tower; 7:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.
UC Davis Transportation and Parking Services Office on Extension Center Drive; 7:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Commuters can also purchase a 10-ride ticket for $15, or an unlimited monthly pass for $45.
It may be an alternative to Yolobus for some - it's 20-30 minutes into Sacramento vs. Yolobus's 60 minutes.
During rush hour in the morning and evening, expect to arrive 15-30 minutes later going either direction than what the schedule below says! Also, if the bus fills up with riders you may have to remain standing for the ride - although they have been known to provide another shuttle if there are many extra passengers.
The buses are equipped with bike racks for bringing your bicycle with you across the Causeway. Each bus only has space for two bicycles - first come, first served.
