Bus Riding Tips

Arrive at the bus stop at least 5 minutes before the scheduled time.

Although every effort is made to remain on time, delays may occur. Click here for information on using Bike Racks on buses.

Wait for the bus at designated bus stop locations only. Click here for information on using Bike Racks on buses.

Have the exact change, or bus pass ready when boarding the bus. This speeds up the boarding process and gets you on your way.

If you need to transfer to another bus to complete your ride, tell the driver you are transferring as soon as you board the bus. You may only transfer at Wal-Mart, White Sands Mall, Inn of the Mountain Gods, or the Chamber of Commerce in Ruidoso.

Be considerate to others. Seats in the front of the bus are designated for individuals with disabilities, and senior citizens.

Please remain seated until the bus comes to a complete stop.

Watch your step as you exit the bus.

For Your Safety and Comfort

NO SMOKING, EATING or DRINKING on the bus. A bus free of litter makes your trip more enjoyable and cuts down on our costs.

Do not talk to the driver while the bus is in motion.

The use of audio devices without earphones and other disruptive behavior is prohibited.

Baby carriages, strollers, or small shopping carts, which cannot be readily collapsed or secured so that they do not block aisles or resent an impediment to other passengers are prohibited on the bus.

Service animals are allowed on the bus, but must be under the control of the passenger at all times. Small animals are allowed if they are in a secure small carrier that can be carried without danger or offense to other passengers.

Firearms and hazardous materials (e.g., batteries, gasoline) are prohibited on the bus.
