Transportation Mission Statement
The mission of the SMC Transportation Department is to transport students safely and efficiently within the campus community arriving at their destination on time as scheduled. SMC will use fuels such as CNG (compressed natural gas) in the safe transportation of students to have the least impact on the air quality and environment of this city and its surrounding neighborhoods.
Getting here has never
been so easy!
It’s new. It’s better. It’s now.
Important update: The Big Blue Bus Swipe
and Ride Program- Big Blue Bus now requires
that you “swipe” your student ID card in order to ride the BBB Any Time, Any Line. You are responsible to activate your card!
è If you’re new this Fall, your card should be ready to use!
è If you’re returning and have a card that has a magnetic strip you must activate your card at the Bursar’s office or half a dozen other stations. YOU WILL NEED YOUR STUDENT / STAFF ID NUMBER!
Big Blue Bus
Thanks to SMC and the Associated Students, SMC students can ride the Big Blue Bus…Any line, Any time! Simply pay your fees, swipe your card, ride the bus and save money, time and the planet! Visit the BBB website for more info.

Make the most of the Santa Monica climate; save time, money, and stay healthy
by riding your bike to SMC. It’s important to properly lock your bike. Starting this fall, bikes that are improperly locked will be impounded. See here for more info on the new bike parking policy. Members of the Associated Students, are eligible to receive free “stand time” and bike maintenance support through our Bikerowave.
ParkingIf you plan to drive to campus, you should allow extra time for traffic and parking, which are particularly difficulty during the first two weeks of school. To park on any of the SMC campuses you must have a current parking decal. Parking decals for SMC's Bundy, Ariport and Perfroming Arts Campuses are FREE. Parking decals may be requested through Corsair Connect or picked up in person at the Bursar's office.
