Service Change Proposals for 2022-2023 Academic Year

Posted on Mar 18 2022

In Chinese/中文  Spanish/en español 

 

UPDATE: The Unitrans Advisory Committee approved proposed changes to the V line weekday and weekend service, frequency changes, and bus stop discontinuation on Sycamore Lane Northbound at Chapparal Apartments. The proposed P/Q line changes were not reviewed or voted on. The approved changes are planned to go into effect on August 1, 2022.

 

Unitrans is proposing the following changes to bus service to take effect on Monday, August 1st, 2022 for the 2022-2023 academic year. The proposals focus on improving your ride by making it more reliable and adjusting to changing customer demand patterns. For a full summary, keep reading or click here.

 

To comment, email comments@unitrans.ucdavis.edu, call 530-752-2877, or mail Unitrans, 1 Shields Avenue, 5 South Hall, Davis, CA 95616. The comment period will close on Thursday, April 28, 2022 Unitrans will hold information sessions on Tuesday, April 5th from 10:00am to 1:00pm at the Memorial Union Terminal and on Thursday, April 7th from 2:00pm to 5:00pm at the Silo Terminal to share proposals and solicit feedback. A virtual public hearing will be held by the Unitrans Advisory Committee on April 28, 2022 at 4:00 PM to hear public comment and vote on the proposals. For meeting information, go to Unitrans Advisory Committee | City of Davis, CA.

 

P/Q Route Change Proposal (ON HOLD/WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED FOR COMING ACADEMIC YEAR): Due to persistent reliability issues, Unitrans proposes rerouting the P and Q lines from Lillard Drive and Drummond Avenue to Cowell Boulevard in South Davis. The proposed route changes impact approximately 4% of P/Q customers and would result in faster, more reliable service for 96% of customers. Impacted customers would use P/Q line stops on Cowell at Halsey Circle, Cowell at Farragut Circle, and Cowell at Drummond Avenue. The W and T lines would continue to serve Lillard Drive and Drummond Avenue directly. Click here for map and impacted stops.

 

West Village Improvement Proposals

V-EX & V-LT Implementation - Unitrans proposes continuing service on the V-EX and V-LT lines in West Village as a response to high customer demand and positive feedback. The V-EX and V-LT would run from 7:00 AM to 8:10 PM up to 4 times per hour each for the next academic year pending driver staffing levels.

Weekend Route Change Proposal - Unitrans proposes changing the weekend V-MU service to provide direct grocery and shopping access for West Village residents. The proposed U line would replace the V-MU and operate via Highway 113 and Russell Boulevard to the MU Terminal directly serving Cuarto Dorms, Trader Joes, and University Mall. The proposal would eliminate service on Hutchison Drive and La Rue Road. Click here for full information and map.

 

Frequency Change Proposals: Unitrans proposes the following service frequencies for regular service in the 2022-2023 academic year, when driver staffing is at adequate levels. Service frequencies will be increased based on customer demand and may not all be implemented at the same time. Only lines which would see service frequency changes from today are displayed. A & Z line frequencies may be adjusted further based on Yolobus Route 42 YoloGo changes. Service 4x/hour on 5th Street is planned however the exact frequency per line may vary.

  • D Line: Operate every 30 minutes
  • E Line: Operate every 30 minutes
  • F Line: Operate every 30 minutes
  • G Line: Operate every 15 minutes
  • J Line: Operate every 15 minutes
  • L Line: Operate every 30 minutes
  • W Line: Operate every 20 minutes + implementation of a new, more reliable schedule
  • V-EX & V-LT: Operate up to every 15 minutes each
  • Z Line: Operate every 30 minutes

 

Bus Stop Discontinuation Proposal: Unitrans proposes eliminating the Sycamore at Chaparral Northbound/Outbound (#142) stop on G and J lines to offer more reliable service on G and J lines. Customers would be directed to Sycamore Lane/Antelope (#140) or the North Sycamore Loop (#144).
