    History

    In the late 1960s, the Associated Students of UC Davis (ASUCD) explored possibilities for providing bus transportation to students traveling between the City of Davis and the campus. The University Transport System, or Unitrans, was founded by ASUCD and service officially began on February 28, 1968 with two London double decker buses operating on two routes. In 2008, Unitrans provided transportation with buses on 15 routes, carrying over 3 million passengers a year.
