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, take your child out of the stroller, fold the stroller, and if possible, stow the stroller out of the way.
- 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.
