Free for UC Davis Health Employees and Students

UC Davis Health employees and students need a Connect Transit Card from Parking and Transportation Services to ride for free. UC Davis Health affiliates can visit the Parking and Transportation Office at any time to pick up a Connect Card. 

Note: if you have a Connect Card that was not issued by Parking and Transportation, you will need a new one from the office to get the free pass.

Anyone who is not affiliated with UC Davis Health may ride the bus by paying the standard fare. A single ride is $2.50. All SacRT tickets and passes, and exact cash/change are accepted, including ZipPass. 

Why Elk Grove? 

UC Davis Health provided funding to SacRT for the Elk Grove Express bus service as a way to offer a convenient transportation solution to employees and students who commute from Elk Grove. About 12% of employees at UC Davis Health live in Elk Grove, making up the highest population of employees from one city. That’s over 1,500 employees commuting from Elk Grove to the medical center! The route was carefully planned by transportation experts at UC Davis Health and SacRT using survey data and population “heat maps” to pick up at stops near the highest concentrations of employees’ homes.
