How to Ride the Bus

  • Familiarize yourself with the bus route and schedule you will be using.
  • Plan to be at your stop a few minutes before the bus is expected to arrive; schedules are estimates and your bus may arrive a few minutes earlier or later.
  • Have your bus pass or exact fare ready. Drivers cannot make change.
  • When the bus approaches, check the route number and destination (shown above the front window) to be sure it is your bus.
  • To get off the bus, about a block before your stop pull the yellow bell cord above the window to alert the driver.
  • Drivers are available to answer any questions you may have about the route and connections.
