Don’t forget that UCLA subsidizes at least 50% of the cost for passes on six different public transit providers for eligible students and employees! You can ride the Santa Monica Big Blue Bus, the Culver City Bus, LA Metro, LADOT Commuter Express, City of Santa Clarita Transit or the Antelope Valley Transit Authority to and from campus and save tons of time and money.
According to U.S. News, Los Angeles is one of the top five cities in the country with the “best combination of public transportation investment, ridership, and safety.” Although mass transit may not be the first thought that enters your mind in connection to LA, 1.5 million Angelenos still ride the LA Metro’s bus or rail service every weekday.
Using public transportation to commute to campus can also make you eligible to join the Bruin Commuter Club (please see eligibility details)! The BCC can offer you subsidized parking through Bruin Commuter Park for those days you need to drive to campus, among other benefits. And don’t forget—you can still win one of our 1,000 $15 Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf gift cards if you register for the BCC by October 31st!
