Route 3M: Westbound 7:18am trip adjusted to serve SAMOHI most weekdays

Route 3M customers: The westbound 7:18am trip from UCLA to Downtown Santa Monica will now terminate at Santa Monica High School (SAMOHI) instead of the 7th St. at Olympic Blvd. terminus.

The adjusted trip will ONLY occur on Mondays, Tuesday, Thursday and Fridays when school is in session. On these days, the 7:18am trip is scheduled to arrive at SAMOHI at 8:00am. This modification will assist students in getting to school before the 8:15am start time.

There will be NO Wednesday adjustments due to SAMOHI's late start schedule.

The 7:18am westbound trip will not serve the following stops:

  • Santa Monica Blvd. at 4th St. (eastbound)
  • Santa Monica Blvd. at 6th St. (eastbound)
  • 7th St. at Olympic Blvd. (southbound)

Instead of turning left from 4th St. onto Santa Monica Blvd. in downtown Santa Monica, the bus will continue south on 4th St. until it reaches SAMOHI. The following stops will be served instead:

  • 4th St. at Santa Monica Blvd.
  • 4th St. at Broadway
  • 4th St. at Santa Monica Place
  • 4th St. at Civic Center Drive
  • Pico Blvd. at 4th St. (eastbound)
