The central campus is closed to unauthorized motor vehicles. Walking and bicycling are the most common ways to traverse the campus.

Bicycles. All bicycles ridden or parked on campus must have a current California state bicycle license. You may buy a license or renewal tag at TAPS. Bicycle traffic and parking regulations are strictly enforced. Bikes may be parked only in designated parking areas and may only be secured to bike racks. The Bicycle Program rents bicycle lockers on a quarterly or annual basis for storage of bicycles only. TAPS provides complimentary bike lock cutting service for campus cyclists who have lost their keys or whose locks are not working. The locked bike must have a current registration; unregistered bikes may be registered at the time of the lock removal. The ASUCD Bike Barn, at the Silo, offers repairs and rentals, and sells new and used bikes, bicycle parts and accessories.

Parking. Vehicles (including motorcycles and mopeds) parked on campus are required to display a valid UC Davis parking permit or pay for time at a meter. Parking is permitted in marked spaces only. Permits must be displayed so all information is visible through the front window. All permit types may be purchased at TAPS and many are available at http://taps.ucdavis.edu. Daily visitor permits may also be purchased from permit dispensers located at entrances to most visitor parking lots. Visitor permits are valid in areas posted for visitor or "C" permits. After 5 p.m. (PT), they are also honored in "A" permit areas and at meters.

Motorist Assistance Services. TAPS provides complimentary on-campus motorist assistance services including vehicle lock-outs, battery jumps, gasoline retrieval and tire inflation services.

Alternative Transportation. UC Davis encourages the use of alternative transportation options through the goClub. The goClub offers discounted transit passes and provides incentives for those who carpool, vanpool, walk, bike, or ride the train or bus to campus on a regular basis. For more information, see http://goclub.ucdavis.edu or call 530-752-6453.

The UC Davis/UC Davis Medical Center Shuttle provides hourly service Monday through Friday between the UC Davis campus and the medical center in Sacramento. The shuttle is available to all members of the UC Davis community. You may purchase shuttle passes at Transportation Services or the Cashier's Office (cash or check only).

The Davis/Berkeley Shuttle provides transportation between the UC Davis campus and the UC Berkeley campus for university employees, registered students and other university affiliates. Advanced reservations are required. For schedule information and reservations, visit Fleet Services at http://fleet.ucdavis.edu or call 530-752-8287.
