How to Ride

Waiting for the Bus

  • Give yourself enough time to get to your stop or designated pick-up point.
  • Avoid walking in unlit or unsafe areas.
  • Be aware of your surroundings.
  • Be aware of places along the route you walk where you can get help, such as open businesses or public telephones.
  • For added safety, travel with a friend or in groups. Immediately report suspicious activity to local law enforcement.

Boarding the Bus

  • Prior to boarding, wait for the bus to come to a complete stop, for the doors to open fully and for passengers to leave the bus.
  • Never walk directly in front of or behind a stopped bus.
  • Pay the exact fare or a bus pass.
  • When boarding and exiting the bus, keep all bags clear of the door.
  • Take your seat promptly after you've entered the bus and make sure children are secure.
  • Standing is permitted behind the white line only. When standing, hold on to the handrail or seat handle while the bus is in motion.
  • If you have any questions while you are on the bus, the driver will assist but try not to distract the driver while the bus is in motion.
