Free Rides for Eligible K-14 Students with a GoPass TAP Card
August 15, 2022

Students who attend participating K-12 schools and community colleges can ride Big Blue Bus, Metro, and other transit agencies at no cost, through the GoPass Program.

Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District (SMMUSD) and Los Angeles Unfied School District (LAUSD) students are eligible to participate in the GoPass Program, and must contact their school's administrator to enroll.

Effective August 18 - 25, 2022, Big Blue Bus will provide courtesy rides to SMMUSD students who need to obtain or renew their GoPass TAP card. Students with school-issued ID cards are encouraged to present them to the driver when boarding the bus. After August 25, 2022, all students will be required to pay a fare on Big Blue Bus, and there will be no exceptions.
