Waiting for the Bus

Individuals wishing to ride the bus must wait for the bus at the designated bus stop at least 5 minutes prior to the bus scheduled arrival. The passenger is responsible for being at the stop when the bus arrives.  However, during inclement weather, passengers may find nearby shelter, but you must be heading to the bus stop when the bus approaches so the driver knows you intend to ride.
