Easy Rider Buses pick up passengers anywhere along a regular route when flagged, except in a designated safety zone area. Easy Rider has designated stops that are located in the congested areas along various routes (Must be at bus stop sign). Please refer to map for designated areas.
Passengers should arrive at the area where they wish to be picked up at least five (5) minutes prior to the scheduled arrival time (see schedule for estimated arrival time). Due to safety issues, drivers are not permitted to pick up passengers that cross the street in front of the bus so all passengers must be sure they are standing on the correct side of the street which may depend on direction you are traveling. You must be clearly visible and must flag the bus down as it is approaching.
The route/destination of each bus is displayed on the destination sign on the front of the bus above the windshield. Before boarding make sure it is the bus you wish to take. If you are unsure, ask the driver to assist you.
Please have exact bus fare or pass ready before boarding. The driver is not able to give change. Also, passengers using a discount fare are required to present acceptable proof of eligibility upon boarding. Free transfers are available on each bus for passengers who will need to transfer to another bus in order to reach their destination. Passengers needing a transfer must request it when boarding the bus. Transfers will not be accepted for return trips and will not be accepted on the route on which they were issued. Transfers issued on a route are valid only at the transit center.
Just before you reach your destination, pull the stop request cord. Please be sure the driver has enough time to make a safe stop. The bus will stop at the nearest corner after the stop request has been activated by the passenger. After you exit, stand to the side of the road or on the sidewalk until the bus has pulled away. For your safety, do not cross in front of the bus and obey all traffic signals.
Passengers wishing to be picked up in parts of some routes marked as a “Deviation Area” on our route guides and maps must call the office prior to the bus leaving the transit center to schedule the pick-up. Passengers wishing to be dropped off in a “Deviation Area” must inform the driver upon boarding.
These rules are in place to ensure that all passengers will have a safe and pleasant trip while riding with Easy Rider. We appreciate your cooperation and assistance in keeping our system safe, clean and pleasant for all who ride.
