How Do I Ride the Blue Bus?
- Get to the bus stop
Arrive at the bus stop early, all our stops are marked with a sign and stop number to help you figure out your location. Stand near the bus stop sign or shelter so the bus driver can see you. When the bus arrives, read the bus number displayed above the windshield to ensure you board the correct bus.
If you’re not sure if the bus is going where you need to go, you can always ask the driver.
- Board the Blue Bus
Wait for the bus to come to a complete stop. Let others exit before entering the bus. Take a seat and enjoy the ride.
- Exiting the Bus
To exit the bus, notify the driver you want to exit by pulling the stop request cord that runs along the upper part of the bus windows or push the stop request button. Wait until the bus comes to a complete stop before standing up. Once the doors open, make sure you have all your belongings and exit the bus.
