Walking to the Bus Stop
- Allow extra time in the morning to get to your stop on time.
- Wear bright clothing so the bus driver and other motorists can see you in the early morning and late evening.
- Dress properly for the weather. Winter clothing, hats, mittens and boots will help you keep warm.
- Watch traffic while walking to your stop. Vehicles may lose control in the snow and ice and you need to be aware of your surroundings.
- Stand back from where the bus stops. Buses need extra room to stop when there is snow and ice.
Waiting at the Bus Stop
- Be cautious at the bus stop. Snow and ice accumulates under the powder and it is easy to slip and fall.
- Don’t throw snowballs at the bus, other vehicles or people.
- Don’t slide on the snow or ice patches in driveways or on the street. You could accidently slide under the wheel of the bus, another car or get hurt.
- Don’t push and shove around the bus. Someone could fall down on the ice or fall beneath the bus.
Entering and Exiting the Bus
- Use the handrail when boarding or exiting the bus to prevent slipping on the wet steps.
- Keep the windows rolled up to prevent frostbite.
- Listen to the driver at all times as they must pay extra attention to the road conditions and other vehicles.
