With the summer season right around the corner, residents can board Santa Clarita Transit’s annual Summer Beach Bus with service to Santa Monica on Saturdays and Sundays. Santa Clarita Transit is excited to bring back the popular service that allows residents to visit the beach using the city’s air-conditioned commuter express buses through Sunday, September 1.
Summer Beach Bus fares are $3.00 each way for children and adults and $1.50 each way for Senior Citizens and persons with disabilities. Riders may pay using the Token Transit mobile app, stored value on their TAP card or exact cash. Monthly passes will not be accepted.
Buses will depart at approximately 8:40 a.m. and return at 4:30 p.m., ensuring a full day of beach activities without the stress of driving on the freeway and finding parking.
