As the Bus Arrives
Before boarding a bus, check the route number and destination displayed on the sign above the windshield. There may be more than one route running on some streets, so be sure to check that sign or ask the driver.
When waiting at a stop that is served by more than one route, signal to the driver that you want her/his bus by making eye contact or raising an arm without waving.
If you do not want a particular bus, step back and wave the bus on so the driver can proceed without stopping.
Wait until the bus comes to a complete stop to board.
