Boarding and Exiting

Boarding the Train

  • Stand back from the platform edge while
    waiting for your train.
  • Wait for exiting passengers to leave
    before boarding.
  • Watch out for the gap between the
    platform and the train.
  • Once inside, take a seat if possible.

Getting off the Train

  • Be ready to exit when your stop
    is approaching.
  • Be sure to take all your belongings
    with you.
  • Watch your step as you exit the train.

Boarding the Bus

  • Arrive at your bus stop five to ten minutes early. Wait on the sidewalk by the bus sign, away from the curb.
  • Check the headsign above the windshield of the bus for the route number and destination. Make sure to check the headsign just before boarding since buses may sometimes change routes.
  • Signal the operator to stop for you by waving. Wait until the bus comes to a complete stop and the door opens all the way before boarding.

Getting off the Bus

  • Watch for your destination. If you are not familiar with the area, ask the operator to call out your street.
  • About one block before your stop, signal the operator to let you off. Press the rubber strip or pull the cord located between the windows to activate the buzzer.
  • Whenever possible, please exit using the rear door. This speeds the boarding of new passengers.
  • Finally, check to be sure you have all your belongings with you — and don’t forget your bike if you used the bike rack!
