Commuter Express buses generally operate Monday thru Friday and make limited stops for faster travel times.
|Starting July 1, UCLA-subsidized LADOT passes will be available exclusively on Transit Access Pass (TAP) cards. TAP cards are smart cards that allow you to load and store your transit pass electronically. Paper passes will no longer be used.
UCLA students and employees can purchase monthly passes for City of Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) Commuter Express buses for 50% of the regular price. Passes are sold in three 31-day increments (roughly corresponding to each academic quarter).
If you are a member of a a UCLA Vanpool or a carpool with a UCLA Carpool Permit, you are not eligible to receive a subsidized LADOT transit pass.
In order to purchase an LADOT pass, visit the Central Ticket Office, open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Bring your BruinCard with you. You can pay by cash, credit/debit or payroll deduction.

Pass Prices for Three 31-Day Passes
*This represents a 50% subsidy, with the other 50% paid for you by UCLA Transportation.
If you only ride LADOT occasionally and do not need a monthly pass, you can purchase a 20-trip booklet at the Central Ticket Office. These purchases, however, do not qualify for the 50% subsidy.
- If you begin riding LADOT in the middle of a quarter, you can also purchase subsidized passes for what you need for the rest of that quarter. For example, if you begin riding in November, you can purchase a two 31-day passes for November and December.
- Pass protection allows you to replace your pass in the event that your TAP card is lost or stolen. In order to be eligible for pass protection, you will need to register your card by calling 1-866-TAPTOGO or by visiting http://taptogo.net. If you do not register your TAP card, you will lose all passes loaded on that card if it is lost or stolen.
