Davis Community Transit (DCT)

Davis Community Transit (DCT) is a service of the City of Davis and provides origin to destination service for eligible Davis residents. DCT service meets the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, which is a law passed to ensure that persons with disabilities have access to a variety of services, including local transportation.

Disabled riders may be accompanied by a personal care attendant, if their registration form identifies this need. A personal care attendant is not required to pay a fare as long as they are riding with the registered rider. One unregistered companion, who pays the regular fare, may also accompany any registered rider on any trip.

For detailed information on applying for eligibility, making ride reservations, hours of operation, DCT fares, connections to other transportation services, or other miscellaneous program information, please visit the Davis Community Transit webpage.


Senior Davis residents (age 60+) may obtain a free bus pass, allowing them unlimited travel on the "red" busses. Pick up a schedule at the Senior Center at the same time you get your pass. You can learn more at the Unitrans webpage.

Yolo Bus

Periodically the Senior Center hosts a representative from Yolo Bus for presentations on frequently used routes, Yolo Bus Special, and to provide senior riders with the photo ID card for the lower fare available to seniors. Many Yolobus schedules are available at the Senior Center. Call (530) 757-5696 to determine when Yolo Bus will next visit the Davis Senior Center. You can learn more at the Yolobus website.
