The Big Blue Bus

ARTExplorer
Over the years, the Big Blue Bus has always maintained a fleet of buses that represents the latest in bus technology. As newer buses with state-of-the-art technology and cleaner burning fuel have been produced, the Big Blue Bus has purchased them. Our fleet of 210 buses represents a range of bus innovation. 43 percent of the fleet is fueled by Liquefied Natural Gas which is 77% cleaner burning than diesel-fueled buses. By 1947, the regular bus rate was 10 cents, but costs kept rising and both the City of Santa Monica and the Bay Cities Transit lines were losing money. In 1950, Bay Cities Transit sold out to Santa Monica Municipal Bus Lines, by now more commonly known as the Blue Bus. Today, the transportation agency has a fleet of approximately 210 buses and carries 21 million passengers a year. The name was officially changed to "Santa Monica's Big Blue Bus" in 1999 at which time the agency also changed the graphic design to the eye-catching "ice blue" currently on each bus.
