How to Ride the Bus


  • Plan your trip using the online trip planner, Google Transit, the Transit Book, or contact customer service.
  • Buy a transit pass at any light rail station, transit center, retail outlet or online.
  • Arrive at the bus stop five minutes before your bus is scheduled to depart. Be visible and stay in the safe zone, away from the curb. Have your fare ready.
  • Let others exit before boarding. Pay fare then move quickly to a seat. If no seat is available, stand behind the yellow line near the front of the bus.
  • Major streets and stops are announced and visually displayed. Watch or listen for your stop. About a block before your destination, pull the cord or press the strip near the window to signal the operator.
  • Exit through the back door.
