Where do I catch the bus?

Bus stops signs are located every two to three blocks along each route. Look for the white, blue and orange sign with our logo and phone number. Or check the ACTracker or mobile app for the exact location of the bus stops nearest you.

What bus riding tips should I keep in mind?

Be at the nearest bus stop at least five minutes before the bus is due to arrive. Be ready with all your belongings to board the bus quickly. Take a seat as quickly as possible or hold onto a pole or strap if you are standing. About one block before your stop, pull the cord or press the button to let the operator know you want off the bus. Remain seated until the bus comes to a complete stop. Exit the bus quickly and safely, and remember to take your belongings with you. Always cross the street at the nearest crosswalk. NEVER cross the street in front of the bus!

Can the bus make a special stop for me?

No, for your own safety, as well as the safety of the traveling public, the bus can only stop at posted bus stop signs. You may have to walk a few blocks to/from the nearest bus stop sign.

What other safety rules should I follow?

Can I bring my bicycle on the bus?

Bicycles are permitted inside the bus only if they can be folded.
