How to Ride the Bus

 

  • Arrive at the bus stop at least 5 minutes early.

  • As the bus approaches, check the sign above the front window (the destination sign) to make sure it is the correct bus. This sign should show the bus route number and destination (for example, Orange: Walmart SC).

  • Signal the operator by raising or waving your hand to ensure he/she sees you and know you want to board. Be sure to stand a safe distance back from the curb until the bus comes to a complete stop.

  • Be ready to pay your fare as soon as you board. If this trip involves a transfer to another bus, let the operator know upon boarding. If paying with cash, exact change is required.  To learn about different pass options, visit our Fares section.

  • When you want to get off the bus, use either the pull cord or the rubber strips around the windows to signal to the operator.

  • When the bus comes to a complete stop, make sure you have all your personal items, and exit the bus through the rear door. Wait on the curb until the bus leaves before crossing the street.

BIKE AND RIDE

  • When the bus approaches the stop, signal the operator by waving your hand, so he or she knows that you want to ride.

  • Load your bike first, then board the bus.

  • To load your bike, squeeze the metal handle located in the central part of the rack to release it and fold it down.

  • Each rack has space for two bikes. If they are both empty, place your bike in the back slot to save room for someone else.

  • Place the wheels in between the metal bars, so the bike stands by itself. Now, secure your bike using the spring-loaded fastener.

  • When you reach your destination, let the driver know you will be removing your bike. Release the wheels from the fastener and put the rack back up to its original position.
