Rules for Riding

 

Rules for Riding

Riders have responsibilities, too. The following rules are enforced by Friendly Rider personnel and carry a penalty up to $250 and/or exclusion from the transit system:

 

FARE IS FAIR.

Valid and correct fare is required.

A valid ticket, pass or correct cash fare is required on Friendly Rider. Without it, you could be fined up to $250, excluded from the system or arrested.

 

TAKE A STAND.

Move for seniors and people with disabilities.

In the priority seating area by the door, you are required to move for seniors and people with disabilities. They need that seat more than you do! (It’s okay to use this area as long as it is not occupied or needed.)

 

KEEP YOUR COOL.

Don’t threaten or intimidate riders or operators.

It’s unlawful to threaten the safety of a rider or driver, or interfere with the movement of a bus.

 

DO NOT DISTURB.

Don’t be so loud that you disturb others.

Everyone deserves a comfortable ride. Excessive noise is not allowed on Friendly Rider.

 

MAKE WAY.

Don’t block the aisles or doors.

If you have a bag or bike, make sure it’s not blocking the aisle or doorway. On buses with steps, strollers must be folded after boarding.

 

PET BOARDING?

If you bring a pet, keep it in a closed carrier.

Unless it’s a service animal, your pet must be kept in a carrier.

 

LUNCHTIME?

Keep food and drinks in closed containers.

Eating is not allowed on Friendly Rider vehicles, but you can bring food and drinks on board in closed containers.

 

No smoking

 

Smoking is prohibited on buses and transit centers. If you smoke, be considerate of your fellow riders by moving away from the bus stop.
