Big Blue Bus is launching Better Blue Bus Stops, an initiative to improve the bus stop experience for riders across the system. Big Blue Bus has approximately 950 bus stops in Santa Monica and Greater Los Angeles. Leveraging both federal grant awards and programmed funds from Santa Monica's Department of Transportation, the agency plans to install new or replacement amenities at select bus stops over a two-year period.
As part of the project, Big Blue Bus staff will evaluate each bus stop and identify opportunities to enhance the passenger experience with new amenities, such as shade, lighting, seating, real-time signs, trash cans, and more. The agency is also gathering stakeholder input to learn which bus stop improvements matter most to the communities it serves. Riders are invited to rate conditions at Big Blue Bus stops they frequent, and help prioritize new amenities at those locations. If your bus stop is missing something, Big Blue Bus wants to hear about it! Share your feedback by taking a short survey before Thursday, November 30, 2023. Complete the survey and you could win a $50 American Express Gift Card!
Your input will help guide future investments in Big Blue Bus stops.
