Metrobus Rules and Manners
- Let passengers get off the bus before you board.
- Watch your step getting on and off.
- Be courteous. Seats next to the doors are reserved for senior citizens and riders with disabilities. Please give your seat to someone who needs it more than you do.
- Stand behind the white line.
- Use the seatback handholds if you are standing.
- Use headphones with all audio and video devices.
- Stay clear of closing doors.
- Always follow the driver's instructions.
- When getting off, wait until the bus leaves to cross the street.
- Eat, drink, smoke or litter on Metro vehicles or in the stations. Metro Transit Police issue citations or make arrests to enforce the law. Help keep the system clean.
- Talk to the driver when the bus is moving.
- Lean against the doors.
- Engage in horseplay or rowdy behavior.
- Hold a small child's hand at all times.
- Make sure your child gets on and off the bus with you. Help each child step on and off the bus safely.
- If you have a stroller, you can keep it open in the priority seating area. It cannot block the aisle or door. Ensure the child is strapped in the stroller, the wheel brakes are on, and hold the stroller at all times.
- Make sure that your child has no dangling clothing, untied shoelaces or unbuckled shoes.
- Devise a plan ahead of time with your children on what to do in case you get separated. If you do get separated, tell a Metro employee. Station managers, transit police train and bus operators, and street and operations supervisors are all trained to help you.
- Let a child sit on bus steps or in the aisle.
- Let a child play or run in the station, on the train or on the bus.
