  • Rooter Bus Schedule (Football/Baseball)
  • Whether it's football or baseball season, we want to help you enjoy every Bruin home game without the hassle of driving and parking, especially at the Rose Bowl. BruinBus offers convenient transportation from campus to the Rose Bowl or the Jackie Robinson Stadium for all home games.

    Buses leave from the top of Bruin Walk. For football games, the first bus departs 2½ hours prior to kick-off and the last bus departs 2 hours prior. We drop off at the Rose Bowl in Lot B with return buses leaving from the same location. Return buses are available at the beginning of the second quarter (buses will leave when full). For baseball games, the first bus departs 1 hour prior to the start of the game. 

    Please reserve your tickets at the Central Ticket Office by 4:00 p.m. on the Wednesday of game week. So come join the fun and let us get you there in BruinBus style!

    Please Note: Rooter Bus riders must wear a face mask that securely covers their nose and chin, and have completed the UCLA Symptom Monitoring Survey prior to boarding.

    BruinBus keeps UCLA moving by providing complimentary shuttle service for the UCLA community including all staff, faculty, students and visitors. The service has grown to include contract services to and from some off-campus housing and athletics events in the Greater Los Angeles area.

    Why Advertise with BruinBus?

    Our buses provide a uniquely captive audience for your advertisements. With travel times for our passengers ranging from 8–60 minutes, internal bus ads offer longer viewing time than online ads and other forms of outdoor media. Also, all advertising revenue directly supports BruinBus services so you can take pleasure in knowing that your advertising dollars are working hard to serve the UCLA community!

    Our Services

    BruinBus operates three on-campus routes carrying over 1 million passengers annually. The University Apartments Shuttle serves several off-campus apartments in the Palms and Mar Vista areas.
