Please Yield to buses re-entering traffic

August 17th, 2018 by ltowner

Please Yield to buses reentering traffic.

There are more people each day choosing to use public transportation to get to and from their destinations. The Transit bus makes several stops along the route to pick up and drop off passengers. This can make it difficult to keep things moving and on schedule. If you see a Transit bus signaling to re-enter traffic please yield to allow them to merge safely back into traffic. By doing this it will help to get passengers to their destination safely and on time. The drivers and passengers thank you for courtesy.

RCW 46.61.220: You must yield to any transit vehicle (bus) that has signaled and is pulling back onto the roadway.
