Bus Etiquette

Being respectful of your fellow riders will make for a more enjoyable experience for everyone. The following are examples of public transportation etiquette:

  • Offer your seat to elderly or disabled passengers.
  • If the bus is crowded, make sure you leave room for people to move around you.
  • Avoid using the phone as much as possible. If you do talk on the phone, try to keep conversations brief and speak quietly.
  • Do not use multiple seats for your bags or for reclining. Be considerate of other people who are boarding the bus and are looking for a seat.
  • Always cover your mouth when you sneeze or cough.
  • If listening to music, use headphones that cannot be heard by other passengers or be sure to keep the volume at a reasonable level.
