  1. Find a place along the bus route that is convenient for you.
  2. Make sure you are on the correct side of the street.
  3. Drivers are instructed NOT to stop for individuals on the wrong side.
  4. Try to avoid busy traffic intersections.
  5. If you can’t avoid being near an intersection meet the bus before it will go through the intersection.
  6. Know about what time the bus will pass by this point and be there early.
  7. When you see the bus, wave to the driver so they know you want to board.
  8. Have your fare or pass ready.
    • Regular fare is $1.25 in cash or coin.
    • Change cards are issued for an overpayment of $.35 or more
    • No, you can NOT ride without paying your fare.
  9. Allow Passengers to exit first
  10. Step on the vehicle, slide your pass through the farebox or place your money in the farebox
    • It is a small rectangular black metal box near the front of the vehicle.
    • Operators are not allowed to handle fares.
  11. If you are new to the routes tell the driver where you want to go (they can help you)
    • The driver may (will) not have time to talk so be quick.
  12. Have a seat and enjoy the ride.
  13. To request the vehicle to stop, pull on the rope along the windows.
  14. Eventually, your route will end up downtown at Magrill Park.
