BruinAccess is a complimentary paratransit service provided by UCLA Transportation for qualified Bruins on weekdays during the academic year from 7:30 a.m. to 12:00 a.m. and during the summer from 7:30 a.m. to 7 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. 

BruinAccess offers curb-to-curb rides from most points within and near campus. The BruinAccess service area is south of Sunset Blvd., east of Veteran Ave., north of Wilshire Blvd., and west of Hilgard Ave. as seen on this map. Seats are filled on a first-to-respond, first-served basis.

If you are a new student rider in need of permanent/temporary disability-related mobility transportation assistance, complete the CAE Request for Accommodation form and await approval to use the service. If you are an employee (staff or faculty), please send an email to or call (310) 794-6948 to request assistance with mobility transportation.

Rides are available on-demand using the TripShot app and are available Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. - 12:00 a.m. during the academic year and 7:30 a.m. - 7 p.m. during the summer.
