Transportation Services, or TAPS, announced a new, mobile option for the purchase of intercampus shuttle tickets and issued a reminder about stack parking.
INTERCAMPUS SHUTTLE — The mobile purchase option comes by way of Sacramento Regional Transit’s ZipPass app (for iOS and Android devices). Simply download it to your phone, for free, to have access to single-ride tickets ($1.50) and monthly passes ($45). Note: Single-ride tickets that you buy through ZipPass must be used within 48 hours of purchase.
Paper tickets and passes are still available at transportation offices on the Davis and Sacramento campuses. Drivers do not accept cash.
“We hope ZipPass will simplify your shuttle experience and encourage more people to choose the shuttle instead of driving between the campuses,” Transportation Services said in a post about the new purchase option.
Effective April 6, the intercampus shuttle will be replaced by the Causeway Connection electric-bus service, connecting the UC Davis campuses while also including other Sacramento stops at certain times of day. The new service will be open to the public.
SacRT and Yolobus will operate the Causeway Connection in partnership with UC Davis. Read more about the new service.
STACK PARKING — This system of fitting more cars into certain parking lots and garages is something you are more likely to see in winter quarter when inclement weather prompts more people to drive to work, instead of biking or walking.
When stack parking is in effect, you may be directed to park in an aisle, and you will have to leave your keys — so that parking attendants can move your car if it is blocking another person’s car, and that person needs to get out.
TAPS has made provision to implement stack parking, when needed, in these locations:
- Lot 25 (in front of the Activities and Recreation Center)
- Lot 47 (corner of La Rue Road and Bioletti Way)
- Pavilion Parking Structure (west entry, Hutchison Drive)
- Gateway Parking Structure (south entry, Old Davis Road)
- Quad Parking Structure (north entry, Howard Way)
Stack parking hours are 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays — but only when attendants determine it is needed. So, some days will have stack parking and some days will not, in the specified lots and garages.
If you are unable to retrieve your vehicle before 6 p.m., you will have until 9:30 p.m. to retrieve your keys from the entry kiosk at the Pavilion Parking Structure.
