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.
