First-time Rider?

Here's what you need to know to ride one of our buses. But first things first, download our app to make the trip even more seamless.


Things to Know

1. Boarding and Riding the Bus

Arrive at your stop at least five (5) minutes before the bus is scheduled. Have your fare ready when the bus approaches.
NOTE: If required, please have the correct fare or pass ready before approaching the bus.

2. Once You Board the Bus

Take your seat as soon as possible and please do not change seats unless absolutely necessary.
Keep aisles and exits clear. Blocking aisles or exits can slow down the bus. Try to keep bags or other items out of the aisles. If you have items with you, please keep them on you, under your seat or in above storage racks when available.
Please be mindful that the seats are for passengers, especially when there is a high volume of passengers on your bus.

2. Exiting the Bus

Notify the bus driver when you wish to exit the bus. As your destination approaches, simply pull the stop request cord that runs along the upper part of the window, or push a yellow stop request strip located on the side panels near the windows on.
Use the rear or center door to exit when available. By exiting at the rear door, people waiting to board the bus can enter immediately through the front doors–this helps to keep the bus on schedule.
