Big Blue Bus wants your input on proposed service changes

When the second and final phase of Metro’s Expo Line opens in early 2016, a light rail connection will link Santa Monica, West LA, Culver City and downtown LA. The closest station to UCLA will be at Westwood Blvd. and Exposition Blvd., two miles south of campus.

Santa Monica Big Blue Bus (BBB) is currently reevaluating all of its bus routes, looking to leverage the full length of the Expo Line to improve overall public transit service throughout the Westside--several of BBB's proposed changes negatively impact service to UCLA. BBB’s resources to provide bus service, however, will remain relatively unchanged, meaning that any new or enhanced routes will also be accompanied by reduced or eliminated service on other routes within the BBB system. BBB has released an initial set of proposed service changes, which can be viewed at http://expo.bigbluebus.com/home. These are only draft recommendations, and BBB is looking for your input on the proposed changes. If you have concerns regarding particular routes, or would like to suggest a new route, make your voice heard. Submit your comments to bus-info@bigbluebus.com or complete a survey at http://expo.bigbluebus.com/survey/.

UCLA employees and students will also have another opportunity to provide input at an on-campus community meeting which will be announced and take place at the beginning of Fall Quarter.
