Riding the bus when it’s icy or snowy?

For real-time bus schedule and service updates that let you know when your bus will arrive at your stop:

Follow this advice to stay safe when the weather is inclement.

Before You Head Out
During the winter, dress in layers of warm clothes and wear slip-resistant footwear in case your bus is delayed. (In bad weather, buses may run behind schedule because operators are asked to drive slowly and put safety first.)

4 Tips for Bus Stop Safety
1. Arrive at the stop at least 10 minutes before your bus is scheduled to arrive.
2. Walk—never run—to the bus stop. Running can be dangerous.  Slips and falls are more frequent types of injuries during winter months.     
3. Keep at least 15 feet between you and the bus as it approaches. Stand back from the curb and only approach the bus after it comes to a complete stop. 
4. Use handrails when stepping on and off the bus as the front and rear entrances can be slippery.
