It might not take six months for the Causeway Connection to become your favorite choice for causeway commuting. However, for the Causeway Connection's first six months, UC Davis is covering fares for affiliates who present a valid ID. 

See a list of sample UC Davis ID types (.pdf)

After the Causeway Connection's first six months
UC Davis undergraduate students will still ride at no cost, while staff, academics and graduate students will pay the same low fare:

  • Employees & Graduate Students: $35/mo. or $1.50 per ride.
