safety tips: Bus travel

  • Use well lit, busy bus stops. Wait with other people when possible.

  • Sit near the front of the bus, close to the driver.

  • Don't fall asleep!

  • If someone is harassing you, tell them firmly and loudly, "Leave me alone!" Persistent persons should be reported to the driver.

  • As you prepare to get off the bus, take note of suspicious persons who are exiting with you. Consider remaining on the bus; if necessary, ask the driver for assistance.

  • Be alert to who gets off the bus with you. If you feel uneasy, walk directly to a place where there are other people.
