Transit Safety

Light Rail
  • Light rail trains are quiet. Listen for bells and horns to alert you to an oncoming train.
  • Wait for the train behind the yellow line on the platform.
  • Cross tracks only at the ends of the platform.
  • Skateboarding, rollerblading and riding bikes on light rail platforms is not permitted.

Buses
  • Wait for the bus a safe distance back from the road.
  • Do not step into the roadway until the bus has stopped and the door has opened.
  • Use the handrail when boarding and exiting.
  • Cross in front of a bus at least 10 feet ahead so the driver can see you.
  • Special areas are designated for elderly customers and those with disabilities. Please surrender these seats when needed.
  • Never stick your arms or legs in the doors to prevent them from closing.
  • Never put your head, arms or hands out of the window.
  • Keep aisles clear of feet, books, bags, etc.
  • Allow other passengers to exit before you board.
  • Never leave any personal belonging unattended. Carry your valuables inside your garment. Securely clasp your purse or bag.
  • Pickpockets often work in tandem. Be aware if you are bumped or squeezed between people.
