  • Give yourself plenty of time to get to your bus stop.
  • Use bus stops on main arterial streets.
  • If your stop is on a hill, wait for the bus at the top or bottom of the hill, not the middle.
  • Buses may run late, please anticipate that it may take longer to reach your destination.
  • Your bus may slide when it stops. When you see the bus, step back from the curb on the sidewalk or grass. Wait until the bus comes to a complete stop then approach the door.
  • Dress warmly.
  • The floor of the bus may be slippery.  Please use caution.
  • If you are traveling after dark, carry a flashlight.
