Long Beach Transit Commuter Line

The Bellflower/Spring (Los Altos Gateway) stop has been replaced with a new stop at the Long Beach Airport. Free parking is available at the overflow lot on Lakewood Blvd. and Donald Douglas Dr. (see route map for location). 

UCLA and Long Beach Transit have partnered to give UCLA commuters a direct connection from Long Beach to Westwood.

Riders can purchase a 30-day pass online (payroll deduction/credit card) or at the Central Ticket Office (cash/debit/check) for a discounted cost of $96 for UCLA employees and $80 for UCLA students. Additionally, Long Beach Transit has negotiated free parking at the Long Beach Airport and Willow Station as an added convenience. See route map for parking locations.

Once passes have been purchased online, customers will need to visit the UCLA Transportation lobby or the Central Ticket Office to have the pass loaded onto their TAP cards.

For a limited time, buy your first 30-day pass and get a second 30-day pass free as a special introductory offer! Offer only valid while supplies last.
