BruinBus Services You May Not Know About

BruinBus and BruinAccess Van

Most of the UCLA community takes BruinBus to get around campus during the week, but it also offers supplemental services in additional to its regular weekday routes. Here are some of the BruinBus services you may not know about.

UCLA SafeRide

For Bruins that need to get around at night, UCLA SafeRide provides complimentary transportation between campus buildings, on-campus housing, and nearby residential areas. The SafeRide Loop operates concurrently with the U5 route, providing service from Wilshire Center to the Hill from 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. approximately every 40 minutes. Live bus tracking can be viewed on the real-time map or the TripShot app, available for download from Google Play or the Apple Store.  


BruinAccess is a complimentary paratransit service for qualified Bruins during academic weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. UCLA Transportation works in collaboration with the UCLA Center for Accessible Education (CAE) and Disability Management Services for Staff & Faculty to determine eligibility for the service. On-demand rides provide curb-to-curb service and can be booked using the TripShot app. For more information on eligibility and how to book a ride, visit the BruinAccess page
