How to Ride the Bus
How to Ride a Bus
Would you like to travel somewhere, don't want to drive, but still want to see the countryside? Take a bus. This is how to ride a bus for those who may be unfamiliar with them.
Figure out how to get where you are going.Contact your local bus or transit system and get help from a "route planner" or buy a map book. Make sure your map book is current. But remember, schedules can change on very short notice or as a consequence of things the driver can't control, like really bad traffic. Most systems also have on-line informational resources. This way you will know the bus schedules and fares. Plan your trip so that you will arrive at least 30 minutes before you need to be somewhere (like school, work or a job interview).
Wait at a bus stop.Make sure you know what your city's bus stops look like and their locations.
When you see the bus coming, get your fare or bus pass out.This saves time! Don't forget to wave him down!
When you get on say "Hello" before you give the driver your money or pass.It's nice and it makes a person's day.
When taking your seat, try to leave the elderly and disabled empty, in case they are needed during your ride.If you are riding a double-Decker bus, take the top. It's a great experience, usually empty, and disabled and elderly people can't climb the steps as easily as you can.
When your stop is coming up next, pull the yellow cord, usually located near the top of the bus.In the United Kingdom, there are stop buttons located on standing poles, press the button once and a ting or low tone sound will be heard by the driver with a monitor which will light up and say 'Stopping' when a stop button is pressed. Use these when you want to get off the bus.
When the bus stops go to the back door (depending on which bus you use).Follow the instructions that you find there and the driver will open the door. On some buses, the doors open automatically and you can go out either door.
Before you get off, make sure to say "Thank you" to the driver.
QuestionHow do I support the elderly on and off the bus using the stairs?Rejoice AkpanCommunity AnswerIf it's a double-decker bus, there is usually a spot for the elderly on the bus, so helping them on and off the bus is made easier. That way, they don't need to go all the way up the stairs.Thanks!
