Unitrans Proposed 2019-2020 Service Changes

Posted on Mar 21 2019

Unitrans is proposing the following changes to bus service to take effect in August 2019 for the 2019-20 academic year. Details for each proposal are below as well as how to comment and/or attend a public open house or public hearing on the proposals.

 

A/Z/O Reroute at Amtrak Station - Due to safety issues, the westbound A, O, and Z lines are proposed to be rerouted from 2nd Street between B Street and H Street to 3rd Street between B Street and H Street. The westbound Amtrak Station stop will be approximately one block from the Amtrak Station. Click here for A/Z downtown inset map and here for O line.

 

S North/West Davis Line - Discontinuation of pilot due to low ridership at end of the 2018-19 Davis Joint Unified School District school year. Customers are directed to F, P, and Q lines. Resources used on this line will be used to improve reliability on the P and Q lines. Click here for S line map.

 

O Weekend Shopper Shuttle - O Line is proposed to operate bi-directionally on 8th Street, L Street, and Pole Line Road to improve access to shopping opportunities such as the Grocery Outlet. As noted above, the O Line is also proposed to operate westbound on 3rd Street in Downtown Davis instead of 2nd Street due to safety issues. The schedule will be adjusted to improve reliability.

X Tercero Loop - The X line is proposed for discontinuation due to low ridership. Resources used on the X line will be used to improve reliability on the O Line. Click here for map.

 

D / G / J / W / V - Reintroduce midday weekday 15 minute service on the D, G, J, W, and V lines.

 

Annual Pass - Price will increase from $198 to $216 effective July 1, 2019. This change was approved and advertised starting in 2018. No changes to the cash fare, 10-ride ticket, monthly pass, or quarterly pass prices.
