Unitrans Returning to Partial Academic Year Schedule for Fall Quarter

Posted on Sep 13 2021

Starting September 22, 2021, ASUCD Unitrans will continue “summer” service levels on select lines with additional night service. In addition, due to an on-going student driver shortage, service on the A and L lines will be temporarily suspended. The Yolo County Transportation District, operator of Yolobus, will temporarily assume operations on the A and L lines. Services will be restored to regular academic year levels as staffing levels improve. The following service levels may last through the 2021-22 academic year:

  • Suspension of the A and L lines by Unitrans

  • Pickup on the D, G, J, W and V lines will remain at the summer service level of two times per hour.

  • Pickup on the E, F, and Z lines will remain at the summer service level of one time per hour

  • Pickup on the B, C, K, M, P, and Q lines will be two times per hour using the “regular” service schedule

  • Additional service compared to summer service levels after 8:10 PM on Monday-Thursday will operate on the D, E, J, V, W, and Z lines

 

The Yolo County Transportation District, operator of Yolobus, will assume operations of the A and L lines in coordination with the City of Davis, using the same letter designations as Unitrans and following the same academic year schedule for the A line and a “summer” service schedule for the L line. To make the transition to Yolobus as easy as possible for customers, Yolobus operated A and L lines will accept all Unitrans passes including the UC Davis undergraduate registration card as valid fare and will charge the local cash fare of $1.25 per ride. A and L lines will operate from the Silo Bus Terminal. The A line will operate the same academic year schedule that Unitrans operated with two times per hour and the L line will operate one time per hour (continuing the “summer” service level). For more information, go to Yolobus.com. Real-time predictions are available at avl.yctd.org

 

Unitrans expects crowding on the A, E, D, F, G, J, L, W, V, and Z lines. Students should plan to take bus trips arriving 30 minutes before morning classes start to provide ample time to get to campus. If staffing levels permit, Unitrans plans to follow the regularly scheduled buses with higher capacity buses to serve riders in the morning when many classes start.

 

Face coverings are required to ride Unitrans through at least January 18, 2022, by federal law. Please be patient with the bus service and try to take an earlier morning trip to campus if possible.
