Mobility Quest

This year, Mobility Quest (MobQuest) will be a 4-day experience for incoming ITS-Davis students. There are two main purposes for MobQuest: First, to introduce you to your new community of fellow incoming students, continuing students, and researchers; Second, to introduce you to a variety of transportation trends, topics, and issues that may influence your time here.

Suggested Packing List

We are still organizing specific activities for this year’s MobQuest. As we will be on-campus for MobQuest this year, we do not anticipate the need to pack a separate travel bag. However, Davis in September is very hot and sunny during the day but can be cool and windy at night. We anticipate a significant amount of time will be spent outdoors. We recommend you have access to:

  • Sunscreen
  • Good walking shoes
  • Water bottle
  • Passport or US ID
  • Camera
  • Cash (for personal use)
  • Bicycle helmet
  • Hat or cap
  • Backpack or day-bag
  • Sunglasses
  • Jacket or windbreaker for evening
