SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Every Thursday night is college night on State Street in Santa Barbara.

Students old enough to drink in local bars are likely to take 'Bill's Bus' to get to and from Isla Vista..

There are 5 buses that will take UCSB students round trip for a small fee.

Craig Jenkins who took over the business from the original operator said the goal is to "arrive alive."

" Every year they use our services instead of drinking and driving it just makes me feel i am doing the right thing for the commuity so it is great all around the kids are young they want to have a nice time im happy to be able to provide the safe service to and from isla vista." said Jenkins.

Jenksin said the founder of Bill's Bus lost a loved one to a drunk driver.

He is working to find sponsors and funding to make the buses free for students.
