New Culver CityBus Rapid 6 Short Line

Culver City Bus

Culver City BusExciting news! The Culver CityBus Rapid 6 has returned to Gateway Plaza (formerly known as Ackerman turnaround). They've also implemented additional service—with a new mid-day service between 10:12 a.m. and 2:42 p.m. that picks up every 30 minutes and additional evening service.

To top it all off, there's a new all-day Rapid 6 Short Line! The Short Line has 8 stops instead of the regular Rapid's 15, from Westwood Plaza/Strathmore Place to Sepulveda Boulevard/Palms Boulevard.

UCLA faculty, staff and students can ride any Culver CityBus for a 50-cent copay per ride, or by purchasing a BruinGO! Flash Pass for only $33 per quarter. This fall, as part of our new BruinTAP for Transit promotion, if you buy a Go Metro pass, you'll get a Flash Pass for free!



Tomorrow is National Dump the Pump Day

If you've ever considered trying to live a little greener, tomorrow is the day to start!

The American Public Transportation Association (APTA) and public transportation systems across the country will be celebrating the 11th Annual National Dump the Pump Day.

Ride the Culver CityBus or local Antelope Valley Authority Transit buses for free all day tomorrow. Plus, Metro Rewards is offering a special promotion: Riders will earn double entries for the monthly drawing when they log in their transit commute at

UCLA Transportation makes its even easier for you to Dump the Pump with our subsidized transit passes for six different agencies.

This summer, we're also giving away free dumpthepumpBruinGO! Flash Passes (valid for Santa Monica Big Blue Bus and Culver CityBus) for anyone who purchases a Go Metro pass, in honor of the Expo Line extension opening.

Imagine all the money you could save by riding transit, especially with the continuous fluctuation of gas prices. According to a recent APTA Transit Savings Report, a two-person household that downsizes to one car can save, on average, more than $9,000 a year.

And it's not just your pockets that you're filling. Studies show that every $1 invested in public transportation generates $4 in economic returns. Help yourself, help your family, help your community, and Dump the Pump!
