Tips for Riding During Winter Weather

Plan to take an earlier trip

Buses move only as quickly as traffic allows. If there is snow or ice, consider taking an earlier bus to ensure that you arrive at your destination on time.

Play it safe

Buses may slide on snow as they approach the curb. Stay on the sidewalk at a safe distance until the bus comes to a complete stop.

Be visible

Especially on dark winter mornings, it’s important that you make yourself visible to an approaching bus. Wear light-color clothing & if possible signal your presence with a flashlight.

Step carefully

Bus steps can become slippery. Please kick the snow from your shoes before boarding. Use the handrails and take your time.

Dress warmly

Once on board your ride will be warm, but be sure to put on an extra layer for your walk to and from your stop.
