    As we enter another Winter in Davis, you may want to get around the city less on a bike and more on a bus. That's why Unitrans is here for you! Worried about staying COVID-safe? Don’t worry. Let's talk about how these red buses are keeping both you and our drivers COVID-free. 

    Even after you hop off, the safety doesn't end there! We clean buses every day with two different solutions that kill the virus. The first is a spray used to wipe down all hard surfaces, and the second is a fogging machine that disinfects the entire interior of the vehicle. By making sure Unitrans operates safely, we can ensure our Davis community can get around while staying healthy.
