TIPS FOR RIDING A LOCAL BUS

  • Be at the bus stop at least five to ten minutes ahead of the scheduled departure time.
  • Flag stops at intersections only; signal by raising your arm.
    Please don’t rush to the curb as the bus is pulling over; wait until it has come to a full stop before walking towards the door.
  • Get on the bus through the front door and pay the fare. Exact change is required.
  • Ask the driver for a transfer, if needed, when you exit the bus.
  • If you’re not getting off at a regular stop, about one block from your stop pull the yellow cord along the side of the bus and this will alert the driver that you want to get off.
