Service Changes

Service Changes Begin May 24, 2020!

Lea un resumen de los cambios en español

Beginning Sunday, May 24, we’re adjusting weekday service on twelve (12) routes, and suspending service on four (4) routes. The changes will help buses run more predictably for customers making essential trips, and better match ridership demand. Big Blue Bus will continue to monitor service, should additional adjustments be required.

Note: Weekday schedules for Routes 1, 3, 7, and 41 are unchanged and will operate as normal.

Important: Printed schedules are currently unavailable. Please refer to online schedules for bus arrival times, or use real-time signs at select bus stops, third-party applications such as Transit, Google Maps, and NextBus, call 310-451-5444, or text "SMBBB" and your stop number to 41411.

Below are the changes that take effect on May 24, 2020.
