How Students ride with LBT

Start by finding the right bus pass for you and follow the steps to make riding the bus easy and safe.

Step 1: Pass Options

Students at participating LBUSD and LBCC schools can get their FREE GoPass TAP Card. For students at non-participating schools, reduced fare student passes are available. And if you go to CSULB, you can pick up a Go Beach! Pass to save.

Step 2: Find Your Route

Now it’s time to get going with Google Maps. Head to our homepage to plan your trip, turn by turn. You can also view live arrival and departure times, explore route options, cost estimates, and more.

Step 3: Ride Confidently

Riding the bus is easy once you know how, and Bus Ride Basics can help get you started. Learn how to request a ride, exit the bus safely, load your bike, and more.
