The Mobility Assistance Shuttle provides shuttle service to current UC Davis students, faculty and staff with documented temporary disabilities. Students with documented permanent disabilities are eligible to receive rides as well. The Mobility Assistance Shuttle provides on-campus rides to specified locations for academic or work-related purposes year-round.

All rides are on-campus to specified locations, and must be for academic or work-related purposes only. Rides must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance, and are on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Please note: All rides are on a first-come first-serve basis, and not all ride requests can be accommodated. We will do our best to accommodate as many users as possible, and will offer alternate ride times if your requested time is unavailable.  We follow the academic calendar and have breaks in service in between Summer Session II and the start of Fall quarter, during holiday breaks and after finals week in the summer.
