Boarding

Please board the bus by the front door then move towards the rear of the bus to make room for others. Please leave the front seats for those who may find it difficult to make their way to the back of the bus.

Exiting

For the convenience of those boarding, please exit the bus by the rear doors whenever possible. Crossing in front of the bus is unsafe. Always cross at the rear of the bus or wait until the bus has pulled away from the curb.

After 6 p.m. Stop Request:
 
After 6 p.m. you can ask a bus operator to let you off at a spot along the route other than your usual bus stop, if it is safe to do so - just let the operator know in advance. Ask your driver at least one bus stop before your regular stop.

Let your driver find a safe place to open the door. This may not be the exact spot you’ve requested. Please exit by the front door only.
