Davis students have overwhelmingly positive remarks about the transportation in the area. The public transportation is convenient and reliable. Davis provides a bus service to the school called Unitrans. Students drive it, which creates many job opportunities for Davis undergrads and is also free of charge to ride. They usually run twice every hour and cover most areas around Davis, so regardless of where the students live, there is probably a Unitrans stop nearby. This is a great mode of transportation during the winter season when the weather is too rainy to ride bikes comfortably. Yolobus is a public bus system that is free to Davis students when they have their student ID. This bus system takes students from campus directly to the Sacramento airport, which is a service that many of the students utilize when trying to get home during winter and spring breaks.
Being the bike capital of the country, the obvious and most popular form of transportation is biking. There are plenty of bike lanes and bike parking, which make it the fastest and easiest way to get around town. UC Davis is a large campus located in a small town, so biking is an efficient way to get across campus, and there are few places that you can't get to by biking. Overall, the students are satisfied with the transportation in Davis, and cars seem to be the least popular choice for getting around campus.
