Big Blue Bus to Supplement BruinBus Service at UCLA

In coordination with BruinBus, Santa Monica Big Blue Bus will be providing additional service to the UCLA community this fall with Routes 2 and 17 beginning September 27. UCLA Transportation partnered with BBB to optimize routes around and on campus. The change supplements the BruinBus U1 route which has been temporarily suspended due to the University's shift to primarily remote instruction.

Big Blue Bus Route 17 will now service locations such as Weyburn Terrace and North Campus including Macgowan Hall. Northbound service on weekdays will be enhanced to every 15 minutes during peak morning hours, and every 20 minutes at all other times in both directions.

Big Blue Bus Route 2 will be providing additional service from the Wilshire Center to campus.

By providing additional service to UCLA, the changes to Route 17 will mitigate any overcrowding on BruinBus and allow for proper physical distancing.
