At IDENTITY in Davis, there are plenty of community amenities that will make you feel like you never have to leave, but don’t forget to head into the California capital city of Sacramento. And you don’t need a car to get there. With several convenient methods of transportation to get you right to the heart of fun, your weekends can be filled with exciting excursions to all your favorite downtown Sacramento locations.
Free Ride With Yolobus
UC Davis undergrads get the perk of free public transit on certain lines, like Yolobus. The 42B heads straight downtown and drops you off at L Street and 13th Street. Catch this bus at the UC Davis Memorial Union station and enjoy a free trip to downtown Sacramento.
Another convenient way to get to town from UC Davis is the Fairfield and Suisun Transit (FAST) Blue Line. Get picked up at the UC Davis Silo bus station and head straight to downtown Sacramento. Your journey is transfer-less, meaning you can bring a book for class and squeeze in some uninterrupted study time on the way there and back.
A direct route to town is also available via FlixBus. Get downtown in style on this comfy bus with free WiFi in just 25 minutes. FlixBus will pick you up at University Mall and drop you off in Old Sacramento on the intersection of 2nd Street and J Street. You can easily bring your bike and take a ride along the Sacramento River Bike Trail, just a few blocks from your dropoff location.
The Quick Way
Amtrak provides trains from UC Davis at the Davis transit station, getting you downtown in a whopping 20 minutes. Tickets will be around $10 for a one-way trip, so it depends on what you value more – time or money.
Being car-less doesn’t mean you have to miss out on all the opportunities for fun in downtown Sacramento. Enjoy your freedom, delve into the Sacramento scene, and come home at the end of the day to your home at IDENTITY Davis.
