BruinGO! Transit Program

BruinTAP for Transit

Our new BruinTAP for Transit program makes it even easier for you to ride transit! You can now purchase or renew BruinGO! passes and/or Go Metro passes online and load both onto one TAP card!

Go Metro transit passes give UCLA riders the convenience of an unlimited quarterly pass at a significantly reduced fare. Metro bus and rail lines are always around the corner at UCLA, making it easy to get from campus to museums, nightlife, restaurants and more.

Now when you buy a Go Metro pass, you get a free BruinGO! pass automatically loaded onto your TAP card! 

Still want to take the bus but don't need a pass? You can ride at a discounted rate with the UCLA Co-Pay.


BruinGO! Pass

The BruinGO! transit program allows UCLA students and employees to travel on any bus operated by Santa Monica Big Blue Bus (BBB) or Culver CityBus (CCB) at a subsidized rate.

If you are (or would like to become) a regular rider on BBB and/or CCB, here's a tip: Purchase a pass, which allows you to ride any bus on either of these networks for an entire academic quarter for the low cost of $45 for students and $55 for employees.

Students $45, Employees $55 per quarter             

$150 for 90 days on BBB ($50 for a 30-day pass)

Single rides $1.25 on BBB and $1.00 on CCB
