Safety and Security
Public transit is convenient, cost-effective and environmentally friendly. Each bus may be equipped with a video observation system. It is the responsibility of the rider to ensure a safe trip by observing the following safety tips. Passengers can assist in this by being alert and responding to the drivers instructions.
Tell a family member or friend your travel plans and route. Call them when you arrive so they know that you arrived at your intended destination.
Don’t doze off or become engrossed in a book. It can make you an easy target. Stay alert and aware of your surroundings.
Keep your purse, bags, backpack and other belongings in your lap or between your feet. Do not leave them on an empty seat.
Be wary of noisy passengers arguing or causing a commotion. This could be an act to distract you while others try to steal your valuables.
If you feel threatened by other passengers, alert the driver and/or change your seat.
Avoid displaying cash, credit cards or expensive looking jewelry.
Notify the driver of any unattended packages or luggage on the bus or at the bus stop.
In case of emergency, alert the driver immediately.
On the Bus
Plan your day. It is important to know where you are going. It is also important to know the scheduled time for pick-up and drop-off.
Remain seated until the bus comes to a complete stop.
Do not cross in front of the bus before or after you get on or off the bus because traffic will not be stopped.
