Here Are the Accessible Transportation Resources Available at UCLA

BruinAccess van

Transportation is an essential service. And when it comes to providing ways for students, faculty, and staff to navigate the campus, the university is committed to having an inclusive system with options for everyone. BruinAccess and UCLA SafeRide are two such services, provided at no cost all year long, to help every Bruin get around campus.

Offered by UCLA Transportation for pre-qualified Bruins in partnership with the UCLA Center for Accessible Education (CAE) and Disability Management Services for Staff & Faculty, BruinAccess is a complimentary paratransit service that provides on-demand curb-to-curb rides from most points within and near campus. 

The BruinAccess van is wheelchair accessible, with two ADA positions, providing a comfortable ride for passengers. Rides are available during academic weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and can be booked using the TripShot app on Google Play or the Apple StoreSeats are filled on a first-to-respond, first-served basis.

To begin riding, students should complete the CAE Request for Accommodation form, while employees can email or call (310) 794-6948. 

ADA-compliant UCLA SafeRide offers safe, reliable evening transportation between campus buildings, on-campus housing, and nearby residential areas at no charge.  

A Safe Loop runs continuously at several different stops Monday – Friday from 6:45 p.m. to 10:10 p.m. On-demand rides can be requested using the TripShot app Monday - Thursday from 7:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. 

Also, ADA-compliant and wheelchair accessible, is BruinBus. With multiple routes around UCLA and into Westwood Village, BruinBus serves the campus community year-round, transporting close to a million passengers annually.

Schedules, stop locations, and the lastest updates on BruinAccess, UCLA SafeRide, and BruinBus, can be found on our websiteblog, and social media platforms. Getting Bruins where they need to be is what UCLA Transportation is here for – and to accommodate the different mobility needs of our campus community.
