2. Find your bus stop

It's best to arrive at your bus stop at least five minutes before your bus is due. A bus stop sign usually indicates bus stops. You should hail a bus at these locations along the designated route. To hail a bus, simply signal by waving to the driver as the bus approaches.

3. Boarding and riding the bus

When you board, tell the driver where you are going and deposit the required bus fare. Most local buses require exact change in coins or $1 bills. When the bus approaches your stop, alert the bus driver by pressing the signal rope above and between the side windows. An audible bell and sign at the front of the bus will indicate that a stop has been requested.

Gather your personal items and wait for the bus to come to a complete stop before getting off. Exit through the rear door to allow room for passengers boarding at the front. Step away from the bus and wait until it leaves before crossing the street. Never cross in front of the bus unless it's stopped at a red light.
