BBB Services Changes Are Now In Effect

Date:

The following is a lightly edited press release from the Big Blue Bus. Visit their webpage for an interactive list of service changes.

Beginning Sunday, August 13, the Big Blue Bus made schedule changes on seven (7) routes to improve service reliability, and extending Route 16 service to Playa del Rey.

Big Blue Bus remains challenged by a nationwide bus operator shortage, which has impacted service delivery and trip frequency. We know you depend on us, and we are actively recruiting, hiring, and training bus operators to keeping you moving safely and reliably. If you enjoy driving, seek real opportunities for career advancement, and are passionate about making a difference in the community, we invite you to join our team! Learn more at bigbluebus.com/driveblue.

Visit bigbluebus.com, or download the Transit app, and plan a trip on or after Sunday, August 13, to see how the adjustments may impact your travel. Our team is also available Monday – Friday, 7:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., to help you get where you’re going. Give us a call at 310-451-5444.
