Big Blue Bus of Santa Monica

Recommended Posts

The third stop on the tour brings us to the Big Blue Bus of Santa Monica. This system on the western edge of Los Angeles serves the city and surrounding areas with UCLA as a major service hub in West LA. BBB's fleet consists of MCI Classics from 1995, New Flyer D40LFs from 1997, NABI 40LFW CNGs from 2001-2003, MCI D4000s, New Flyer L40LFs from 2005 & 2008 as well as Thomas SLF 230s used for the Tide Ride service.


New Flyer D40LF #3838 is seen outside of Union Station on Route 10 express which runs from Downtown LA to Downtown Santa Monica.

This is one of 67 NFIs and the first low floors in the system:
