Santa Monica College

Ride BBB for free! Any Line, Any Time! 

Santa Monica College (SMC) students/staff may ride any Big Blue Bus line at any time using a valid, activated SMC ID card with current semester sticker (here's how to get a semester sticker and activate your card). Then simply swipe your ID in the farebox when boarding to ride any Big Blue Bus, any time for free! 

P.S. Need a transfer? Buy an interagency transfer as soon as you board if you plan to ride BBB to Metro, Expo or any other service. If you’re transferring from another agency to BBB, save your cash, it’s free.
