In addition to finding BruinBus arrival times online and via text, did you know you can simply dial (310) 954-0017 and be told how many minutes it will be until your bus rolls in?

When you call, you’ll hear the following message:

“Welcome to NextBus. Please enter the stop number you would like a real-time arrival prediction for.”

At that point, punch in the two digit stop number you are interested in. You can find that number on the sign at your stop or on this BruinBus map.

After you enter your stop number, you will immediately hear a message that sounds something like this:

“Next vehicles in 2 and 6 minutes. The predictions are for stop Murphy Hall for Campus Express Southbound.” You will also be notified of any route changes or delays, if applicable.

Manage your time–grab that notebook you need for class, finish sending off those last emails or spend a few extra minutes with your sweetie. Know before you go!

This video was a joint project headed by UCLA film students and UCLA Transportation to get the word out about BruinBus, our free campus shuttle service.
