Be sure to take all your belongings
- Watch your step as you exit the train.
Boarding the Bus
- Arrive at your bus stop five to ten minutes early. Wait on the sidewalk by the bus sign, away from the curb.
- Check the headsign above the windshield of the bus for the route number and destination. Make sure to check the headsign just before boarding since buses may sometimes change routes.
- Signal the operator to stop for you by waving. Wait until the bus comes to a complete stop and the door opens all the way before boarding.
Getting off the Bus
- Watch for your destination. If you are not familiar with the area, ask the operator to call out your street.
- About one block before your stop, signal the operator to let you off. Press the rubber strip or pull the cord located between the windows to activate the buzzer.
- Whenever possible, please exit using the rear door. This speeds the boarding of new passengers.
- Finally, check to be sure you have all your belongings with you — and don’t forget your bike if you used the bike rack!
