Here’s how you can stay safe when waiting for the bus, exiting the bus, or preparing to cross the street. Oprime aqui para español.


  • Be aware of your surroundings when at a bus stop or crossing the street.
  • Wait on the sidewalk, not at the curb or in the street.
  • Don’t approach a moving bus and never chase a bus.
  • Do not step in front of a bus or stand in between vehicles.


  • Wait for the bus to pull away and the stop to be clear before approaching the curb.

  • Look left, right, and left again before crossing the street.
  • Watch for traffic and pedestrian signals and always follow the law.
