Hailing the bus couldn’t be easier. Find a spot on the route where the bus can stop legally and safely, preferably a bus stop, and signal the driver.

Let the driver know where you want to be dropped along the route and the driver will find a safe, legal place as close as possible.

For your safety strollers must be packed down and placed flat in the bus.
