Careful the Cold- Riding Tranist Tips

Transit Riding Tips:

• If there’s no traffic going by your bus stop, walk to a stop on a busy street.
• If your bus stop is in the middle of a hill, walk to the bottom or top where the operator can safely stop.
• Stand back from the curb until the bus comes to a complete stop. Buses can slide sideways in slippery conditions.
• Keep in mind, your bus may not pull all the way over to the curb to avoid getting stuck.
