How to Ride

MCT buses will stop at any designated stops along the route or any major intersection along the route as long as it is safe to do so, no stops on Franklin Street will be made other than those designated as a stop.  Be sure to be visible to the operator as the bus approaches, clearly signal to the operator that you wish to board.  As a courtesy, take a moment to see if anyone is disembarking.  Please be careful boarding and watch your step.  Please take your seat immediately after boarding.  You must store your bags, packages, carts, strollers etc. in your lap or under your seat.  You will only be allowed to board with the amount of personal property you are able to carry boarding one time.  Do not block aisles and doorways.  To exit the bus signal the operator by pulling the cord as you approach your stop.  Please remain seated until the bus comes to a stop and watch your step as you get off the bus.  Stand back and wait for the bus to leave the stop.  NEVER CROSS IN FRONT OF A BUS.  MCT wants to ensure the safety of all its passengers, operators and the general public.  Our operators do their best to follow the posted schedules in order for you to arrive at your destination safely and on time.  However, on occasions things will cause delays. Your patience and understanding is greatly appreciated.
