Go car-free to festival Saturday

The average household in Davis is responsible for 40 metric tons CO2 emissions each year. Our cars and the fossil fuels they burn are one of the largest contributors to the problem, according to the Cool Davis Initiative.

“If we have any hope of reducing our collective carbon footprint, we have to start practicing getting out of our cars,” a news release said. “It could be fun, especially if we try it all together.”

On Saturday, organizers of the Cool Davis Festival, which runs from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in Central Park, challenge you to go car-free for the day:

* Walk. Thousands of Davisites live within 2 miles of the park, and that distance could make for a nice stroll on a beautiful Saturday morning. If you walked a long way to get the festival, read on for information about taking the bus home.

Bike. Bicycling to the festival (and to the Farmers Market) is a good option from any part of Davis, using the bike paths and on-street bike lanes.

* Ride the bus. Unitrans service will be free on Saturday on lines P/Q, O, W and J. Weekend buses run hourly from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The P/Q lines run the perimeter of Davis in two loops (counter-clockwise and clockwise). The lines stop on Fifth and D streets, a block from Central Park.

The O line is the “shoppers shuttle” that normally stops at Third and B streets. That intersection will be closed for the festival, so get off at Fifth and D. The eastbound bus stops are at Second and B and Second and F streets.

The W line from South Davis stops downtown on First Street between C and D streets.

If you ride the J line, stay on the bus at the Silo Terminal and continue into downtown as the W line.

More information, including real-time tracking of bus locations and detailed maps and schedules, can be found at www.unitrans.com.

Those who find they must drive may park at City Hall, 23 Russell Blvd.; in the school district lot at Fifth and B streets; and at the UC Davis parking garage on Howard Way. Parking is free on campus on Saturday.
