The always popular Santa Monica based Big Blue Bus has done it again, adding its second Rapid bus line to their service line. Like Metro's Rapid Routes and their own Rapid 3 that runs down Lincoln Blvd. between Santa Monica and the LAX area, Rapid 7 will have a limited number of stops, cutting down on travel time (even beyond the Super 7 that it's replacing). It basically runs back and forth between downtown Santa Monica and the Rimpau Transit Center approximately between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. with a small three hour(ish) break from 9 a.m. to noon. ALSO: And now with the school season back in session, the Any Line Any Time service, where Santa Monica College students and staff ride for free, will begin.
