Santa Monica’s municipal bus line, known locally as the “Big Blue Bus,” transports passengers from Santa Monica to downtown LA to Beverly Hills, Century City, and numerous other popular destinations throughout the area. With a large number of buses, trucks, cars, motorcycles, and other vehicles on the road, it is not uncommon for Big Blue Buses to become involved in accidents. When this occurs, passengers, other drivers, bicyclists, and even pedestrians often suffer severe, life-altering injuries and death. Due to the sheer size and weight of these buses, the consequences of an accident are immense.
If you or your loved one was injured in an accident involving a Big Blue Bus, private charter bus, or any other type of bus in the Santa Monica or surrounding areas, contact B&D Law Group, APLC. Our Santa Monica bus accident attorneys can help you fight for the fair recovery you deserve.

What Causes Bus Accidents?
Like any other type of motor vehicle accident, bus accidents can be caused by a wide variety of factors, including but not limited to:
- Bus driver error
- Improper bus maintenance
- Faulty bus design
- Defective bus parts
- Inadequate bus operator training
- Defective station design
- Dangerous road design
- Bus driver negligence or inattention
- Driving under the influence of drugs/alcohol
- Fatigued driving
- Lack of proper supervision
Bringing a claim against a public entity, such as the Santa Monica Municipal Bus Lines, is typically very complex. You must file your injury claim within six months of the date of accident/injury (with few exceptions). Additionally, there may be multiple liable parties, including the bus driver, the City of Santa Monica, or even the vehicle manufacturer or maintenance crews. It is absolutely crucial that you discuss your case with an experienced Santa Monica bus accident attorney who understands how to pursue a Big Blue Bus accident claim.
