How Will BBB Fare Changes Affect You?


bbbIn short, it won't.

Santa Monica Big Blue Bus (BBB) recently made several price adjustments to its fares and passes.

But thankfully, UCLA staff, faculty and students with a valid BruinCard will not be affected by these changes.

The cost of BruinGO! Flash Passes ($33/quarter) and BBB co-pays (50 cents) will remain the same.

Check below to see what's changed with BBB for all other riders.
