How to Ride Safely

  • If you witness any suspicious or illegal activity, please ensure your driver is made aware of the incident.
  • Buses can make sudden stops. Be sure to take a seat, or hold firmly to a handle after you’ve paid your fare.
  • Please keep belongings out of the aisle. Please fold up strollers after boarding.
