Transportation to and from Davis

UC Davis is located near two international airports: Sacramento International and San Francisco International. Depending on where you are arriving from, you will likely fly into one of these airports and then take ground transportation to the Davis area. There are a number of transportation options from each airport depending on how much money and time you are able to spend.


Getting to Davis from Sacramento International Airport (SMF)

Sacramento International Airport (SMF) is about 22 miles/34 km away from Davis.
Airport ground transportation service providers:
Dan's Cab (530) 756-5600
• SuperShuttle 1-800-BLUE-VAN or 1-800-258-3826
• Yolo Bus 1-530-756-6715 or 1-800-565-5153
Taxi service is available at SMF airport

Davis Airporter and SuperShuttle Shared Van Services

You can make arrangements ahead of time for either Dan's Cab taxi or SuperShuttle van services to pick you up at SMF and deliver you to your address in Davis. SuperShuttle rides are usually less expensive, but please note that they are often shared with other SMF passengers so there may be multiple stops and passenger drop-offs throughout the trip to your final destination. You may make reservations through their web sites or by phone (shown above).

Yolobus
Yolobus offers direct bus service to Davis from the Sacramento International Airport. Although inexpensive, this bus will not deliver you to a specific address in Davis and may not have space for extra baggage. Davis is not a large town, so Davis taxi cab services are a readily available and inexpensive option for transportation from the bus stop to your hotel. A mobile phone will be needed to contact a taxi cab service from the bus stop to arrange pick up.

Taxi Service
Taxi service is also available at the airport. For more information, visit SMF Taxi Service or Davis taxi cab services. We recommend Dan's Cab service.

Lyft and Uber service providers are also available in the Sacramento/Davis area.

• SuperShuttle 1-800-BLUE-VAN or 1-800-258-3826
BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) connecting to Amtrak Train Service
• Taxi service is available at SFO airport

Davis Airporter and SuperShuttle Shared Van Services
You can make arrangements ahead of time for SuperShuttle van service to pick you up at SFO and deliver you to your address in Davis.

BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) connecting to Amtrak Train Service (Capital Corridor route)
An economical option (but possibly longer travel time) for reaching Davis from SFO is to take BART directly from the airport BART train station that is located in the International Terminal (Level 3: Departure/Ticketing Level Near Boarding Area G) to the Richmond station. From Richmond you can then take one of Amtrak's daily Capital Commuter trains which runs between San Francisco bay area and Sacramento, including a stop in Davis. Please note that the Davis train station is located in downtown Davis, so you will need to arrange transportation from there to your final destination. Davis is not a large town, so Davis taxi cab services are a readily available and inexpensive option for transportation from the train station to your hotel or final destination in the Davis area. A mobile phone may be needed to contact a taxi cab service from the train station to arrange pick up.

Taxi Service
A multitude of taxi cab services are available at SFO airport.
