Before You Head Out
First, be sure to check the website or call 919-485-7433 for service change information. During the winter, dress in layers of warm clothes and wear slip-resistant footwear in case your bus is delayed. (In bad weather, buses may run behind schedule because operators are asked to drive slowly and put safety first.)
4 Tips for Bus Stop Safety
- Arrive at the stop at least 10 minutes before your bus is scheduled to arrive.
- Walk—never run—to the bus stop. Running can be dangerous. Slips and falls are more frequent types of injuries during winter months.
- Keep at least 15 feet between you and the bus as it approaches. Stand back from the curb and only approach the bus after it comes to a complete stop.
- Use handrails when stepping on and off the bus as the front and rear entrances can be slippery.
