Boarding & Exiting

Boarding and Payment

  1. Check for Correct Bus

    When you see a bus coming, determine if it is the correct bus by reading the route number and destination of the bus on the destination sign on the front of the bus or on the curbside of the bus. Flashing lights indicate that the bus is slowing down to a stop.

  2. Step Up

    When your bus approaches, step to the curb or wave to let the operator know you want to board.

  3. Board your Bus

    Step aboard and pay your fare. All of our vehicles are compliant with the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) and have wheelchair access.

  4. Have Your Fare Ready

    Have your fare ready before boarding. All buses have electronic fareboxes that accept dollar bills and coins, and can issue a change card if necessary. This change card can be used toward a future fare.

  5. Pay Your Fare

    You may pay your fare with cash, or a fare card. Fare cards are available at QuikTrip stores and other locations.

  6. Take a Seat

    If you plan to transfer to another bus to complete your trip, ask the driver for a U2 Pass. The U2 Pass is good for two hours and will allow you to transfer to your next bus. Hold on to the handrails as you find a seat, as the bus may begin to move before you sit down.

Exiting the Bus

  1. Signal the Driver

    As the bus approaches your stop, signal the driver that you want off by pressing the rubber strip between the windows or above your seat, or pull the cord (depending on the particular bus).

  2. Give Notice

    The operator will stop at the closest safe place or the next bus stop sign. Please give the driver enough notice so that he may make a smooth stop.

  3. Determine Your Location

    If you are not familiar with the area, ask the driver to let you know when you are nearing your destination.

  4. Exit Bus

    Please exit the bus from the rear door if other passengers are boarding at your departure point. To open the rear door, push on the door’s silver bars.

  5. Watch Your Step

    Carefully step off the bus.

For safety reasons, boarding and de-boarding buses is not allowed when the bus is stopped at traffic signals.  The driver must first go through the intersection before stopping to pick up or drop off passengers.  Safety is number one!
