Go Metro Transit

Due to new Federal guidelines regarding subsidized transit passes, all UCLA students and employees purchasing a Go Metro pass are required to take a short one-time survey prior to making their purchase. 

BruinTAP for Transit

Our BruinTAP for Transit program makes it easy for you to ride transit! You can purchase or renew Go Metro and/or BruinGO! 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!
