Bus Stops in Rural Areas
In rural areas along Highway 93/95 where there are no designated
bus stops, the bus can be flagged down along the route.
When you want to catch the bus, find a safe location along
the route and wave the bus down. A safe location is one where
visibility is good and where the bus can easily pull off the
road, such as a driveway or postal box area.
Make sure you are visible, especially when it's dark. Carry
a flashlight or stand in a well-lit area.
To get off the bus, let the driver know ahead of time where
you want to get off, and they will find a safe place to pull
over as close to your requested stop as possible.
Safety on the Bus
Please remain seated when the bus is in motion. Do not put
your arms or elbows out of the window. Do not bring combustible
materials such as wet-cell batteries and gasoline containers
onto the bus. To request a stop, pull the bell cord in time
for your driver to be able to stop safely.
Getting off the Bus
After leaving the bus, wait until the bus pulls away and you
have a clear view of any oncoming traffic before you cross the
street. To get off the bus in rural areas with no designated
bus stops, ask the driver to find a safe place to stop.
- For safety reasons, drivers will refuse service to passengers not wearing shirts and footwear.
- The bus is a great way to get to and from the beach, lake or pool, but please make sure your clothes are dry when boarding.
Please be ready to travel a few minutes before your scheduled
pick-up time. Have your fare ready when you get on the bus.
If you are using a wheelchair, be sure it is equipped with
a lap belt.
If you are using a Walkman or other portable music player,
please keep the volume down.
If the bus is a few minutes late, please be patient. This is
a shared-ride transit service, which makes it difficult to be
precisely on time for each pick-up. But if the bus is more than
15 minutes late, please call the transit office to find out
what's going on.
If you lose something on the bus, call Lost and Found at 1-877-343-2461.
If you find something on the bus, give it to the driver, who
will deliver it to Lost and Found.
The Columbia Valley Transit System staff will keep articles
in Lost and Found for up to 14 days, then send the articles
to a charitable organisation.
Lost items will be returned to you by bus.
