Flag Stops

 

 

What is a flag stop?

A flag stop is when a rider boards the bus at a location that is not an established bus stop with a posted bus stop sign.  If you are unable to make it to a regular bus stop, flagging the bus down is an option in certain areas.

 

How do I flag a bus?

Call and talk it over with a customer service representative.  Together you can identify a safe location, where the bus can stop without creating a hazard, and where the driver can see you in plenty of time to stop.  As the bus approaches, raise and lower your arm over your head several times to catch the driver’s attention.  Be sure to stay back from the edge of the road to allow the bus enough room to pull off.  During dark or foggy weather we suggest you have a flashlight that you can wave for the driver to see you.
