Pay your fare
When you board, insert exact change or a prepaid ticket into the farebox. Present your bus pass, transfer, or discount card to the operator.
Sit back and relax
Once you're on the bus, sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride until the bus approaches your stop. About a block before you want to get off the bus, let the operator know by pulling the cord or pressing the black strip along or above the window. If you're not sure, just ask the operator to tell you when the bus reaches your stop. Wait for the bus to make a complete stop before leaving your seat.
