How to Halloween in 2020

October 10, 2020

Celebrating Halloween this year will be different, but you can still have a fun (and spooky) time while keeping yourself and others healthy.

UC Davis Awarded Grant to Add Electric Buses

September 28, 2020

ASUCD Unitrans is five buses closer to its goal of funding 14 battery electric buses as the first major milestone on the way to full electrification of its fleet.

That funding, passing from the city to UC Davis, will cover 80 percent of the purchase price for five battery electric buses, with the remaining 20 percent provided by student fees, and bring the total number of funded buses to 11 of the 14-bus target.

To the UC Davis and City of Davis Community:

May 05, 2020


Everyone in the UC Davis community is living with a high degree of uncertainty right now. Some of it centers on questions that affect almost all of us—when will on-campus instruction resume?
