Track Transit Arrivals With NextBus


bruinbusTired of waiting for your bus or wondering if you missed it? Need to know if your train is delayed? If you’re a frequent transit rider, NextBus is definitely a must-have, especially when you’re on the go!

With NextBus, passengers can track real-time arrivals—including BruinBus movements—on their mobile devices via the NextBus app, a web-based service that gives transit riders access to the specific location of their bus or train and predicted arrival times.

NextBus also provides real-time information for Santa Monica Big Blue Bus and Metro bus and rail lines. The app utilizes your location to determine what routes are in your area.

Simply download the NextBus app on any iOS or Android device. Once there, NextBus will allow you to check if your ride is on schedule or delayed because of traffic, weather conditions or construction. Yes, it’s that easy! You can even set alerts so that NextBus will notify you when your bus is near, or if there’s been a delay!

For customers without smartphones, real-time BruinBus data can be accessed by texting “nbus ucla” followed by a space and the two-digit stop number to 41411, or by calling (310) 954-0017 at any time and entering the stop number.

The new Wilshire route—previously called the Wilshire Center Express— is now making a northbound stop on Lindbrook Drive directly behind the Hammer Museum, a southbound stop on Lindbrook Drive in front of Panera Bread, and a southbound stop at Murphy Hall.

These new stops will provide UCLA employees and students access to Westwood Village, the Wilshire Center and main campus. The schedule for the new Wilshire route will remain the same.

BruinBus introduces two new all-electric buses to its fleet!



On Tuesday, September 27, UCLA Transportation reveled two new, all-electric buses as part of the BruinBus transit program. The ribbon cutting ceremony took place at Dickson Court North featuring music, light refreshments, fun BruinBus giveaways and a test ride on one of the buses.

These zero emission, clean-fueled transit buses can run for up to 145 miles and only require 4 hours of recharging time. Built by the automotive company BYD, the battery-electric buses are five times more efficient compared to diesel, CNG, and hybrid technologies and will replace the last diesel buses in the BruinBus campus shuttle fleet. The buses will be the first electric buses at any public university in California!
