Any Line Any Time logo.jpg


Thanks to the SMC Associated Students and the District, the very popular “Any Line, Any Time” program continues for the coming year. Once you've paid the Associated Students fee and obtained the sticker, your student ID card can be activated at the Bursar’s Office or the Admissions Office which allows you to ride “Any Line, Any Time” for free on the Big Blue Bus.


Visit the Big Blue Bus SMC website for detailed route information: 


Big Blue Bus now requires that you “swipe” your student ID card in order to board. You are responsible to activate your card.
  •   If you’re new this semester – your card should be ready to use.
  •   If you’re returning and  have a card that has a magnetic stripe – activate your card at any of the following stations:

           •   Main Campus 

                    Bursar’s Office during normal hours 

                    Admissions Office during normal hours

                    Auxiliary Services (staff only)

          •   Airport Arts Campus 
                    Lobby, first two weeks of the semester, 8am to 5pm
          •   Bundy Campus 
                    Staff Office in Lobby, first two weeks of the semester, 8am to 5pm
          •   Performing Arts Center 
                     Outside of the PAC bookstore, first two weeks of the semester, 8am to 5pm
          •   Pico Bus Stop

During the first week of school, returning students can get IDs activated for the semester at the bus stop located at Pico and 18th street.

If you’re returning and your card does not have a magnetic stripe – you’ll need a new ID card, available at the Bursar’s office on the main campus. When you get a new ID card, it should be swiped and ready to use.
Get your swiped card now and start riding the Big Blue Bus for free thanks to SMC and the Associated Students!
