How to Ride
Signs on the top front of the bus above the windshield tell you the number, the major streets the bus runs on, and the final destination of the bus. Read these signs to be sure you board the right bus. If you're not sure, just ask the driver.

When you see your bus approach, please stand near the bus stop sign. This lets your driver know you want to catch the bus. It's a good idea to make note of the vehicle number of the bus - it's the painted number on the outside and inside. That number may come in handy if you need to report something about your trip.

Enter the bus through the front door. Please be sure to have the exact fare ready as you board. Our drivers carry no change. If you need an interagency transfer to complete your one-way trip, please buy one when you pay your fare.

Our fare boxes accept coins and dollar bills; but like the drivers, they don't make change! After you put your money into the farebox, or show the driver your pass, hold onto the handrails as you find a seat, as the bus may begin to move before you sit down. If you are a senior or disabled and need extra time boarding the bus, be sure to let the driver know.

As the bus approaches your stop, signal the driver that you want off by pressing the black or yellow strips along the side of the bus next to the window. Please give the driver enough notice so that he may make a smooth stop.

When getting off the bus, please exit through the rear door. Just push the yellow strip on the door and the doors will open. Carefully step off the bus onto the sidewalk.
