City Bus Offers Affordable Rides to the Santa Monica Shore

The City of Santa Clarita is proud to welcome back the popular and expanded Summer Beach Bus, offering affordable weekend rides to Santa Monica Beach on Saturdays and Sundays from June 4 through September 4.

¡°The City¡¯s Weekend Summer Beach Bus provides the perfect opportunity for teens, families and seniors to enjoy an affordable, relaxing ride to the beach without the hassle of driving or finding parking,¡± said Mayor Marsha McLean.

Grab your sunscreen, towel, chair, and surfboard and enjoy a relaxing trip to the beach in one of the City¡¯s comfortable, air-conditioned commuter buses. Fares are $3 each way for children and adults, with tickets available at $1.50 each way for persons with disabilities and seniors 60 years of age and over.

Buses will depart from Santa Clarita beginning at 8:30 a.m., arriving in Santa Monica around 10:30 a.m. and will pick-up patrons from Santa Monica at 3:30 p.m. for the return trip back to Santa Clarita.

This year, the weekend Summer Beach Bus has added a second Saturday service route to the schedule with multiple departure locations. On Saturdays, the City will run two busses, with one bus, Route 100, serving the east side of the City, and a second bus, Route 101, serving the west side of the City. On Sunday, the City will utilize one bus to service both the east and west sides of Santa Clarita.

Community members can travel from the canyons to the sea and back again from various locations across the City including Santa Clarita Park, Santa Clarita Metrolink Station, Cinema Drive Park ¡®N Ride, McBean Regional Transit Center, Canyon Country Park, Soledad Canyon Road and Solamint Drive, Soledad Canyon Road and Shangri-La Drive, and the Via Princessa Metrolink Station.
