As concert goers plan their trip to the Santa Monica Pier, the City is reminding the  community and regional neighbors to consider all the great transportation options available in Santa Monica. 

Transit

There are now more ways than ever to get to and around Santa Monica. The Expo Line offers a direct connection from Downtown L.A. to Downtown Santa Monica, just four short blocks to the Pier. Santa Monica’s two other Expo Stations: 26th St./Bergamot and 17th St./Santa Monica College are less than ten minutes to the terminus. Big Blue Bus connects to all Expo Stations, and has routes throughout the region. Breeze Bike Share and bike valet make biking to the Pier safe and convenient.
