The thousands of UCLA students who use the Santa Monica Big Blue Bus to get to campus should be alerted to some service changes taking effect this weekend, the city said Saturday.
The Big Blues will no longer run all the way onto the UCLA campus at night hours, but will instead detour onto the campus circle drive -- Charles E. Young Drive -- the bus service announced.
Daytime buses -- between 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. -- wuill run all the way to the Hilgard Terminal.
Other Big Blue Bus schedule changes that will take effect this weekend include the cancellation of some weekday morning bus service on routes 1,2, 3 and 5, due to low ridership.
