Big Blue Bus Annual Meeting

Westsiders: How would you like the Santa Monica Big Blue Bus to connect to the subway? That’s the big topic up for discussion at BBB’s round of annual community meetings. The BBB wants to take the Rapid 7 line that runs down Pico to go all the way east to meet the Metro Red Line at Wilshire and Western!

Other topics will include:

  • Splitting the Sunset Ride into two routes, to have buses travel down 17th St. in both directions.
  • Increasing service to Santa Monica High School via BBB lines 4 and 9.
  • Info on the "Tri-Annual Analysis & Three-Year Service Plan," with details on ridership, on-time performance, and passenger loads, as well as the status of the new maintenance facility project and ordering of articulated buses.
  • Info on upcoming BBB events, including BBB’s 80th Anniversary celebration party on the Promenade April 14th at 11 a.m., and other community events such as Earth Day, Santa Monica Festival, Twilight Concert Series and Alt Car Expo.
