Bus Safety and Etiquette

Important Bus Safety Tips

While waiting for your bus…

    • Wait for buses at designated stops— stand 2-3 feet from the curb.
    • Never run after a bus— you may slip and fall or be struck by another vehicle.
    • Use designated crosswalks and sidewalks to reach the bus stop. Never walk in a traffic lane.
    • Have your fare or bus card ready so you can hold the handrails.

When boarding and disembarking the vehicle…

    • Use handrails to help you keep your balance.
    • Avoid long, stretched steps to the first step of the bus when boarding or to the curb when getting off the bus.

While riding on the bus…

    • Stand behind the white line while the bus is in motion.
    • Don’t lean or press on the doors.
    • Keep hands, feet and items clear from closing doors.
    • Wait for the bus to stop fully before leaving your seat.
    • Do not put any part of your body outside the bus window.
    • Keep your legs and personal items from extending into the aisle to prevent others from tripping.

When you get off the bus…

  • Step onto the sidewalk- don’t walk between the side of the bus and the curb.
  • Never walk in front of the bus, even if it is stopped.
  • Use only designated crosswalks.
