Buses are actually one of the safest modes of transportation out there! According to studies, the fatality rate for car occupants is 23 times higher than that for bus occupants.
That means that riding the bus is much safer than driving your own car. So don't worry, you're in good hands on the bus!
If you have a stroller, no worries! Buses have priority seating at the front specifically for individuals with strollers. You can conveniently leave your stroller unfolded and in its place without the need to fold and store it.
Yes, all buses in the Puget Sound region are wheelchair accessible. They have either a lift or ramp to allow for easy boarding and exiting of the bus. All buses also have designated areas for passengers in wheelchairs to secure themselves during the ride.
Most buses arrive on time, which includes a 5-minute window, but sometimes they can be delayed due to traffic, weather, or other unforeseen circumstances. If your bus is late, you can use the Transit Tracker on the Pierce Transit website or app to see when your bus is expected to arrive.
You can sit anywhere on the bus, except for seats designated for pregnant people, people with luggage, passengers with disabilities or seniors. If these seats are not occupied, other passengers may use them. It is important to give up your seat to someone who needs it more than you, such as an elderly person or someone with a disability.
