Tips to help you ride safely every step of your journey:
Look for Passenger Assistance Alarms (PAAs) on articulated (long) buses and double-deckers!
Use the PAA to tell the operator about an emergency at the back of the bus or on the top deck. When an alarm button is pushed, the operator will:
- Let the control centre know
- Stop the bus when it is safe to do so
- Make an announcement over the PA system to let customers know the PAA has been activated and that the bus must be stopped and the situation investigated
- Invite anyone with information about the situation to come forward
After 7 pm, you can ask the driver to stop at a safe spot along the route closer to your destination. Please exit by the front door.
