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.

bbbTired of waiting for your bus or wondering if you missed it? Santa Monica Big Blue Bus passengers can now track real-time arrivals on their mobile devices via NextBus, a web-based service that gives transit riders access to the specific location of their bus and predicted arrival time at their stop.

Big Blue Bus announced the release of NextBus arrival information last Wednesday. By logging on to NextBus' mobile-friendly site, commuters are able to find out if their bus is on schedule or delayed because of traffic, weather or construction. The NextBus app, however, is currently only available for Android devices. NextBus for iOS will be available for download from the App Store this summer.

For customers without smartphones, real-time data can be accessed by texting “SMBBB” followed by a space and the stop number to 41411, or by calling (310) 451-5444 at any time and entering the stop number.

Riding multiple lines? NextBus also provides real-time arrival information for UCLA’s BruinBus and Los Angeles Metro, and is able to determine what routes are in your area by utilizing your location.
