The easiest way to get started is to call us. Then you can tell one of our transit experts where you’re starting and where you want to go. You’ll get personalized trip information, including schedule times and fare information. Ask the representative where to wait for your bus, or schedule Dial-A-Ride and we’ll pick you up at your location.
Be sure to get to the stop five minutes early. When the bus approaches, signal for it to stop. If the bus is the one you want, just hop on.

WHAT ARE THE RULES ON THE BUS?
If you’re traveling with children, make sure they stay seated for the whole trip. Fold strollers and keep them out of the way. Don’t smoke (including e-cigarettes), eat or listen to electronics without headphones. Finally, the aisle-facing seats in front are for seniors or riders with special needs. If the bus is full, please give your seat to a senior or a person with disabilities.
