The newly redesigned Culver CityBus Website has won the 2020 Horizon Interactive Silver Award under the category “Websites for Towns & Municipalities”. This award recognizes “excellence in interactive media productions”. 

For nearly 20 years, the Horizon Interactive Awards competition has been recognizing, promoting and awarding the best web sites, videos, online advertising, print media and mobile applications. 

Each year, the competition receives thousands of entries from all over the world and a volunteer panel of industry professionals, from diverse multi-media, graphic design, advertising and marketing backgrounds, review the entries to determine the work that is to be recognized. 

In December 2020, OpenCities, our website vendor, submitted our website for this award. The competition included over 600 international entries that showcased websites with interactive media solutions.  

Highlights of the new Culver CityBus website include features like “in the news,”  “safety tips,” a photo gallery and video library and quick links to Rider Alerts and nextccbus. Now, the Culver CityBus website has more information than ever!

The Culver CityBus website was designed in partnership with OpenCities, Transportation Department staff, and the City’s Webmaster to explore and implement new and innovative techniques.

Recognized in 2020, as California Transit Association’s Agency of the Year, Culver CityBus is the second oldest municipally owned bus line in the State of California.  

On March 3, 1928, service was implemented and since its establishment, passengers on Culver CityBus have enjoyed safe, reliable, convenient, and friendly public transportation service.  

The Culver CityBus fleet is comprised of 54 compressed natural gas (CNG) buses. Culver CityBus operates seven regular routes and one BRT route, serving approximately 5 million passengers annually with a 33 square mile service area, which includes the Westside communities of Venice, Westchester, Westwood, West Los Angeles, Palms, Marina Del Rey, Rancho Park, Mar Vista, Century City, Playa Vista and Culver City.
