Bike it! Walk it! Bus it! Week

May 6 - May 10

Bike It Walk It Bus It Week
Monday, May 6th thru Friday, May 10th
Each year schools work to encourage as many students as possible to bike, walk, skate, scoot, or ride the bus to school. Teachers participate by counting the number of kids who participate in a districtwide competition to see who can get the most. Launched in 2010, Bike It! Walk It! is now a parent-led initiative. Participation will vary by school.

Big Blue Bus is celebrating this week by giving K-12 students who attend school in Santa Monica free rides.
Eligible students may
1) Use Your GoPass TAP Card or 2) Show Your Valid School ID to the Operator.

1. Use Your GoPass TAP Card
The Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District (SMMUSD) participates in Metro’s GoPass Program. With GoPass, students can ride free on Metro, Big Blue Bus, and 11 other participating transit agencies in LA County at any time, including during Bike It!, Walk It!, Bus It! Week. Attend a SMMUSD school but not yet participating in the GoPass Program? Contact your school administrator to get your free GoPass TAP card. For more details, visit: metro.net/gopass.

2. Show Your Valid School ID to the Operator
Show your valid school ID to the Big Blue Bus Operator when boarding, and your ride is free during Bike It, Walk It, Bus It Week! Don’t have a school ID? We’ll also accept a current report card, class schedule, or an official letter from your school verifying enrollment.

Don’t miss out on the fun from May 6 to May 10!
