Our Mission

The UC Davis Medical Center operates a comprehensive parking and transportation system to support its patients, visitors, faculty, staff, students and volunteers in pursuit of the medical center's core mission of research, training and patient care. Parking and transportation systems are designed and operated within the context of each campus' Long Range Development Plan (LRDP) to support and enhance the physical setting and design, environmental protection measures, and accessibility needs. Parking services is endeavoring to meet the current and long-range needs of the medical center's community (i.e., patients, visitors, faculty, staff, students and volunteers).

UC Davis Medical Center's parking fund generates income through permit sales, hourly parking charges, departmental recharges, and meter collections. A reserve fund is maintained for construction activities, parking operations including its share of utilities, landscaping, cleaning, signage, maintenance, and repair. The Fines and Forfeitures fund is supported from citation revenue to support greener more sustainable transportation options.

Parking services will continue to implement a planning and financial parking facility development strategy which allows for construction of short-term, low-cost surface parking to meet the access requirements of the medical center until permanent and more expensive parking structures and surface lots are constructed. This strategy avoids implementing spiked permit fee increases in one year, which parking patrons have identified as unreasonable, and allows parking services to establish rate increases, necessary to meet its debt service obligations.
