Step 4: Alighting the bus

  • When you want to get off the bus press the bell once, giving the driver plenty of time to stop safely.
  • Then please exit the bus, where a bus has them by the Centre Doors or exit by Front Door if not. For safety reasons, do not cross the white line at the front of the bus until the bus has stopped.

  • When the bus stops, get off carefully or, if required, ask the driver to kneel the bus or to operate the ramp.
  • Wait until the bus has completed the kneeling operation or the ramp is fully in place before getting off.
  • As you are getting off the bus, always watch out for cyclists on your left passing on the inside of the bus.
