Substitute 30-foot buses may be operating in place of the all-electric LouLift buses in downtown Louisville during icy weather. Service on Main, Market and 4th Street will remain in place and be fare-free.
TIPS FOR THE BUS STOP
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 curb until the bus comes to a complete stop.
Especially on dark winter mornings, it’s important that you make yourself visible to an approaching bus. Wear light-color clothing. Signal your presence with a small blinker light or flashlight.
Bus steps can become slippery from snow. Kick the snow from your shoes before stepping on the bus. Use the handrails and take your time.
Although the ride should be warm, your trip to and from the bus stop may not be. Put on an extra layer – even a short wait at your stop can be dangerous if you’re not dressed for the weather. If the temperature on your bus isn’t right, please tell your driver so the problem can be fixed or reported to repair staff.
Don’t blame the driver.
If your bus is late, remember that your driver is doing his or her best to make sure you arrive at your destination despite bad road conditions.
