Getting to Davis from Sacramento International Airport

The Sacramento International Airport (SMF) is just over 20 miles (32 km) from UC Davis which can take between 25 minutes to an hour, depending on the time of day and traffic. It is advisable to use a map application (like Waze, Google Maps, Apple Maps, etc,) to estimate travel time when deciding upon transportation options. If you are headed to a location in Sacramento from SMF, the distance is shorter so taxi and ride sharing services will be less expensive; YoloBus will cost approximately the same amount.
